% PREFACE • 

The voyage made bj the I nited States Atlantic 
Fleet in 1907-8, as I have chronicled it in this volume, is 
destined to be an event which will figure prominently, 
not only in the history of the United States but in the 
history of the world. I have, therefore, exerted ever) 
energj toward securing such data as will make this 
volume ;: work, to which reference may be made in years 
to come with the view of eliminating a- tar as possible 
the fear of conveying error to the reader. 

The mission of our navy, in time of peace. i- one 
of great importance; and it has done more by its friendly 
visits to foreign countries to preserve international 
harmony than has the spilling of all the blood recorded in 
the pasjes of the world's history. 

In the preparation of this work I have endeavored 
to chronicle the events of this most wonderful voyage; 
and as the volume i- probably destined to become his- 
tory, I have thought it advisable to consider existing 
conditions which were matters of interest to the world 
immediate!}! before the fleet was ordered on the mem- 
orable voyage from the Atlantic to the Pacific. In so 
doing, I may have departed, somewhat, from a recital 
of the events confined solelj to the voyage; but I 
confident that for the act I need not apologize, as without 
the publication of such condition- it seems as though the 
volume would be of less value in years to come. 

To Rear Admiral Roble\ I). Evans, Commander- 
in-Chief of the United State- Atlantic Fleet, and to the 

officers and enlisted men of hi- command I am deeply 
indebted for the assistance given me in the preparation 
of data, and for their liberal support which ha- made the 
publication of this book possible.

10 WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 



FOREWORD 



The layman has read articles in the daily, weekly and monthly publications 
relative to the voyage of the great Atlantic fleet of battleships from $e Atlantic to 
the Pacific, over a route covering a distance of nearly 15,000 miles; yet, he realizes 
little more than the fact that the fleet left Hampton Roads on December 16, 1907. 
and arrived at San Francisco on the 6th of May. He does not appreciate the great 
amount of work necessary to get such an array of ships in condition to stand the 
stress of such a voyage, nor does he realize the importance that there is attached to 
the event. He knew that the fleet was to have sailed ; he knew that the fleet had 
sailed ; and from the mere knowledge of the facts he has voiced his censure or his 
approbation of the action of the Navy Department simply from his own impressions of 
the folly or wisdom of those in whose authority the issuance of the order was vested. 

The aim of the Navy Department has ever been to the end of maintaining the 
navy in the most perfect state of efficiency. 

Theory is, unquestionably, the base from which conditions shape themselves 
into a state of perfected maturity; yet theory, in itself, is as valueless an element in 
process of perfecting a navy as is the fine machinery of a ship without the fire in 
the furnaces or the water in the boilers. 

Theory it was that enabled Admiral Evans to report to the Navy Department 
that he could sail from Hampton Roads at a certain hour on a certain day, arriv- 
ing at and departing from Trinidad, Rio Janeiro, Punta Arenas and Callao at 
fixed dates. True, the precedents established had given confidence in the ability of 
Admiral Evans, of his command and of his ship to accomplish the feats as he 
had declared ; yet the confirmation only came with the practical demonstration of 
such ability in actually making the voyage, arriving at and departing from each 
port of call on the long voyage as he has done with the regularity and punctuality 
of a railroad train. 

Theory has always given us a reasonable degree of assurance of the ability 
of our officers and men and of the efficiency of our ships; but it is the practice, 
the demonstration, that has brought the reassuring confidence engendering that feel- 
ing of security in which our institutions rest when dependent upon the strength 
of our navy. It is practice, therefore, that brings all things to the physical state 
of maturity in our navy showing that "practice makes perfect" applies to all things. 

It is the preparation for such events that brings to light certain weaknesses 
which may be corrected ere the time when their discovery would be too late. Each 
process which has done its part to put the fleet in readiness has been a great object 
lesson ; each weakness that the process has developed has been met with a remedy 
which will work toward its correction to the end that such weakness will not again 
occur at a time when it may mean an advantage to an enemy. 

It is well for us to listen to beautiful sermons on the continual peace of the 
world; it would be well could we but see the consummation of such a state; but we 
cannot go beyond the fact that we must accept conditions in the world, today, as 
we find them. War may ever be as it always has been ; and if the trend of things 
is to be resolved into a condition of "the survival of the fittest" let us accept that 
condition and do our utmost to put ourselves in the place of the most fit. 



FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC 11 

First, then, and foremost, the object of the move <>t the fleet is intended to be 
a practical demonstration of the efficiencj of our navy, which will have a twofold 

purpose, the first of which is to show our own people that they can rel\ upon our 
ships for the protection they theoretical!} are supposed to give; and, secondly, the 
proved efficienq of the fleet will have the influence upon a possible enemj of causing 
him to weigh carefull) the wisdom of a belligerent attitude or challenge to the 
Stars and Stripes. 

It is lamentable to think that there should be a feeling of jealousy existing 
between the states of the Atlantic Coast and those of the Pacific, yet such there seems 
to be. Upon this subject, however, it is not my intention to dwell; and I will pass 
it by saying that the time may come w lien those of the Atlantic Coast who have been 
loud in their condemnation of the Navv Department in ordering the Meet to the 

Pacific may be brought forcibly to realize the wisdom of the order. 

It is the advance of civilization that has been the cause of wars so tar as we can 
trace its history. The great wave of civilization started in the East; it swelled far 
beyond its limits; and westward it went, carrying with it the enlightening influences 
of ages and peoples, growing in a sweeping tide, carrying awa) the barriers of antiq- 
uity which lay destroyed in its wake Ever gaining momentum, across Europe it 
swept, oxer to England and across the Atlantic, finding out the great American 
Continent and there establishing a civilization fraught with the best fruits of ages 
of accumulation. Still westward it swept, fighting hardships. yet stopping at no 
barrier. Westward it was bound; westward it has come: and now the last relay of the 
L'reat race is in the immediate future — westward, still, to the Past, its birthplace. 
The gates of Cathay were dosed ages ago to confine the condition of which the world 

did not know; and now as stolidly are thej closed to keep it out. Phe barriers which 
have resisted this swelling wave have all been swept aw a\ ; and today it is hurling 
itself against the great stones of seclusion that surround the Past until they, too, are 
falling. 

The Mediterranean was the sea of the world and its shores were the marts. 
Slowly — hardl\ perceptibly -after the advent of Columbus, did the scene of the 

great drama that the world was playing shift to the Atlant V inevitable as Pate 
the scene is again changing, and the Pacific will soon be the great stage before the 
footlights of the world. 

The work of civilization has been completed in Europe, and each Stage U 

■evolution has been marked by war. It may be that the dove and the olive branch 
will take the place of the horseman and the spear, but we must allow precedents to 
form the base upon which prophecy is to be founded. 

When that long line of battleships s U ung outside the Virginian Capes and 
trailed away into the hazy south, the most formidable fleet that ever started on a long 
voyage in times of peace was under way. Not since England and Prance sent out 
their respective squadrons to clear the Spanish Main of buccaneers have so mam 
ships of war invaded the high southern latitudes together, or crossed the Equator 
under one Hag. Older nations expressed frank wonder that such a costly cruise 
should be undertaken unless in war, but the I nited States feels that it can well 
afford not only to show the rest of the world what our ships and our bluejackets can 
do, but also that we are prepared to take care of both coasts, and that the safest 
perch for the dove of peace is on a loaded gun. Hence the Pacific Cruise. 

The peace armada traveled in battle array, guns and ammunition ready, wire- 
less in operation, and the "watch below" on the qui WW for the call to "general

quarters" and clear ship for action, the same as if an enemy lurked below the horizon 
ready to advance upon them with the creeping of night over the face of the waters, 
or rise ghost-like before them out of the mists of dawn. What true American, either 
by birth or adoption, can contemplate in imagination the majestic voyage of that 
superb squadron without feeling his heart swell with patriotic pride? Picture if you 
can those magnificent vessels sweeping southward at a rate of speed that slackened 
neither for wind nor weather, each ship bearing in its steel-clad hi$l the stored 
lightnings and thunders of war, but flying the milk-white stars of the flag that is 
always first in peace. But not in their armored sides, nor in their powerful arma- 
ment, is their invincibility; in their fighting men lies their strength — trim, tanned, 
bright-eyed bluejackets, ideal sea-fightets every mother's son of them, whose appear- 
ance inspires instant respect in the breast of the lawless, and seems to say: "We are 
out for a frolic, but we've got our powder with us." 

The most awe-inspiring thought born of Uncle Sam's naval parade around two 
continents is the thrilling one that every man of the thousands in it is ready to lay 
down his life for the nation at an instant's notice. Their loyal hearts are at once 
Columbia's shield and spear. 

To many in the fleet that have never been south of the Equator before, that long 
voyage toward the setting sun will be like an experience in the pages of some master 
of fiction — Clark Russell, or Maryatt, or Jules Verne. Hardly one of the bluejackets 
there would exchange the joys of that trip, or its dangers either, for some of the 
pleasantest experiences on shore in Boston or New York, and many a grizzled veteran 
in the years to come will hold an audience of his cronies spellbound while he proudly 
narrates to them how he went "through the Strait of Magellan with Rear Admiral 
Evans in 1908." Many a time the old fellow will go back in dreams, sleeping and 
waking, to that never-to-be-forgotten voyage, the glamour of the tropic nights when 
the Southern Cross lifted its flaming symbol in the velvety purple skies ahead, and 
the enchantment of long days when strange fish frolicked alongside and great masses 
of "raisinweed" with its grape-like clusters of yellow berries floated lazily by on its way 
to the Sargasso Sea. Sometimes a feather-topped palm would start up against the 
red sunset, indicating a lonely atoll fringed with coral reefs, or the huge bulk of a 
decaying derelict would be sighted, wallowing heavily in the oily swells, a thing 
for speculation, a mystery and menace of the region of the trades. He will paint a 
vivid word picture to the little grandsons on his knees of the time-honored grotesque 
ceremonies attendant on the "crossing of the line" of the Equator, and he will pro- 
duce the quaintly worded subpoena and certificate signed by Neptunus Rex. This 
was before the sixteen battleships and four smaller vessels arrived in the beautiful 
harbor of Rio, where they were royally welcomed by the Brazilians. He will tell ot 
the approach to the southernmost seas, where the water falling away from the giant 
bows at night was no longer phosphorescent and the flying fish and dolphins no longer 
amused the crews by day, because they were left behind in warmer latitudes. Gradu- 
ally the color of the ocean changed from translucent sapphire to cold emerald and 
stormy gray as the naval parade approached the entrance to the dreaded Strait 
of Magellan — that narrow, tortuous waterway between desolate wind-swept cliffs, 
bare of vegetation and covered with hundreds of screaming, half-starved sea-birds. 
That dangerous passage between towering walls of granite, and through rock-ribbed, 
foaming billows, was like a nightmare to even the stoutest spirits in the fleet. It 
was a game of follow my leader in and out between boiling whirlpools, and hissing 
currents, seething around black reef points rising from the troubled waters like the

cruel fangs of submarine monsters lying in wait to rip the bottom of an armor-clad as 
easily as a rider's toe goes through a circus hoop. Everybod) heaved a big sigh of 
relief when the last leviathan of war slipped out into the Pacific ovei the bleaching 
bones of the Spanish trader which, tor economic reasons, dared the dangerous pas 
sage a tew years ago without a competent navigator and went down with the open 
sea and safet] in sight. 

Attn t|c Strait came sunn) days bowling over the blue bosom of the Pacific 
Ocean, riding the lorn: swells with the grace and ease of aquatic birds, and knowing 
that soon the blessed shores of God's countrj would be sighted again. There were 
places where ever) bluejacket longed to stop it onlj for a daj -Valparaiso, that 

kaleidoscopic citv of the coast, when- the rag-tag and bob-tail of the seven ^i'.is 
black, white and vellow, loaf about the wharves, waiting tor some short handed 
wind-jammer or tramp steamship to stop on the wav from Honolulu to pick up i 
crew : and other Spanish- American towns where the Strange customs and mantle: 
the old world rubbed shoulders with the rough ways and the sharp practices of the 
new. Hut a whole city was waiting beyond the Farallones to give the voyagei 

glorious welcome, and the propellers never slackened their steady throb. Hut swiftly 
as they revolved ever) heart aboard was racing ahead of the churning blades to the 
goal within the Golden ( late, tor letters waited there — letters from the dear patient 
wives and sweethearts, sisters and mothers left behind. "They also serve who only 
stand and wait," and in this history of that record run from Hampton Roads to San 
Francisco is recorded that honor due the mothers of the navy whose prayers attended 
the fleet, some laurel leaves of praise are accorded the patriotic women who followed 
with anxious and loving thoughts the progress of the ships. 

The Pacific cruise is an epoch in the history of the United States Navy. I* 
makes glad the heart of every man who wears the uniform to know that he is a part 
of such a magnificent war-machine as an American battleship. 

Some years ago a German naval officer made the remark that "if American sail- 
ors were as good at navigation as they were at gunnerv the American Nav) would 
be invincible." The Pacilic cruise has proved beyond doubt that the man behind 
the gun can navigate his ship as well as sink the enemy. It has advertised the 
efficiency of the navy to all the world, and if has shown that our squadrons can make 
a long and trying voyage and come up ready for action at the hoistin 
the time this book has been put in type the fleet will have reached its destination 
the western coast, and the sea-wean crews will be feasting on fresh fruits from the 
great vineyards and the glowing gardens of the Golden Gate, and it i- 
that if they found the city besieged by a foreign squadron every American ship and 
every officer and man would be in fit condition to go into battle immediately. 

The effect of such an extended cruise upon the men has been invaluable. It has 
created in them a deeper love tot the service and a greater interest in their work; it has 
necessarily caused a greater pride in their uniform. It has taught them a firmer dis- 
cipline, and it has bound the officers and men together with bonds of universal under- 
standing and good feeling such as onlv men can feel who share the delights and 
dangers of a long sea-voyage under novel conditions. Above all it has inspired the 
young men of the United States with a patriotic desire also to become part of the 
fighting force of the nation, and to defend the flag which was born in the midst 
bloodshed and famine and exists in peace and prosperity, a terror to the evil . 
and a beacon to the oppressed. And it will also serve to point to the fact that the 
United States Navy is second to none, and that it is maintained not for the prosecu- 
tion of war, but the maintenance of peace.

REAR ADMIRAL ROBLEY D. EVANS, U. S. N. 

Commander-in-Chief United States Atlantic Fleet. 



FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC 15 

Were we here to publish a biography of Rear Admiral Roblej D. Evans it would 
simply mean the republication of a storj of a lite with which the country is thor- 
oughly familiar; a lite which lias been wholly devoted to the service of the country. 
In connection, however, with the work which Rear Admiral Evans performed in 
bringing the Atlantic Fleet to the Pacific Coast on this wonderful, as well as memor- 
able voyage, it may be well to consider the Admiral's ability to handle fleets, as having 
been demonstrated by a previous occasion, although* not one embracing so large a 
scope as the feat he has just accomplished as this book goes to press. 

From the date of his commission Rear Admiral Roblej D. Ivans has demon- 
strated a wonderful executive ability. A feature which has always been paramount in 
his various commands has been the ever preparedness in which his ships have always 
been found for service. 

Rear Admiral Roblev I). Evans was in command of the United States Asiatic 
Fleet, when in November, 1903. lie received instructions to proceed with the fleet 
to Honolulu at the earliest possible date. Such a voyage would have ordinarily re- 
quired much time for preparation, but the rapidity with which Admiral Evans as- 
sembled the fleet and started it out on its cruise pursuant to the Department's order 
was remarkable indeed. His flagship was then the Kentucky, and the fleet comprised 
two squadrons, one of battleships and one of cruisers. In the battleship squadron 
were the Kentucky, Wisconsin and Oregon; in the cruiser squadron were the New- 
Orleans, Albany. Raleigh ami Cincinnati. It was necessarj that most of the ships 
be docked before they could be sent to the voyage. Distributing the vessels along 
the Japanese Coast in places where docking facilities could be obtained. Admiral 
Evans quickly provided for this contingency. 

The greatest difficulty in complying with the Department's order rested in the 
fact that it came like a thunderbolt from a clear sky, at a time when Russia and 
Japan were facing each other at swords' points, but waiting for the hovering war 
cloud to burst. It seemed a critical moment, and the withdrawal of the American 
fleet from the Asiatic Station at that time was undoubtedly the last move which 
might have been anticipated from the Department. 

It was necessary to provide the fleet with provisions in a poor market. The 
order was received at a time when it caused a complete reversion of movements con- 
templated by the Commander-in-Chief for the winter's cruise and drill. The wisdom 
of the movement was not to be questioned, and Admiral Evans, like the true sailor he 
is, obeyed. 

In less than ten days from the receipt of the order the cruisers New ( )r!caiis, 
Cincinnati. Raleigh and Albany, accompanied by the naval collier Pompey, left 
Yokohama tor Honolulu by way of Midway. The ability of Admiral Evans to con- 
template an intinerary for a cruise around the world is resultant of the careful study 
and calculation of a man of the wide experience which he has had. 

As in the recent cruise of the Atlantic Fleet he has kept the >.hips in their voj 
around two continents on schedule time, so did he plan the movements of the 
Asiatic Fleet on this cruise to Honolulu, timing the difference between the departures 
of the cruisers and the battleships so that the two squadrons might meet at sea and 
steam into the harbor of Honolulu together. Following the cruiser* the battleships 
Kentucky. Wisconsin and ( )rc<:on put to sea on the next day. Although the speed of the 
cruiser squadron was supposed to be greater than that of the battleships. Admiral 
Evans realized that the duties on which be had sent the cruisers would require

more time, as they would have to pass considerably to the northward and stop at 
Midway for what instructions might there be received from the Department regard- 
ing the further movement of the fleet. 

It was known only that the Department had ordered the fleet from the 
Asiatic Station, and conjecture was rife as to the reason. Quoting from a Japanese 
paper, published at the time, we give the following: 

"The most feasible reason for the departure of the United States Asiatic Fleet 
rests in the probability that the Argentine Republic and Chili may ally themselves 
with Colombia in disputing the right of the United States to acknowledge the State 
of Panama." 

What further orders might have awaited the fleet the Commander-in-Chief 
himself did not know, and it was his expectation that his destination was to have 
been Panama. By dispatching the cruisers to Midway he could thereby have saved 
much time, for in his forethought he had provisioned and coaled his fleet for a run, 
had such been necessary, to Panama without the necessity of touching at Honolulu, 
had he so received instructions at Midway. 

Realizing the consummation of his plan, Admiral Evans met the cruisers three 
clays before the Hawaiian Islands were reached, and finding no change in his 
original orders proceeded with the fleet to Honolulu. 

If it were the purpose of the Department to have ordered the fleet on a practice 
cruise, that purpose was fully realized, and Admiral Evans demonstrated fully his 
ability to move a fleet almost at a moment's notice. 

After a stay of a week during the Christmas holidays the fleet proceeded to 
Manila. The two squadrons separated at sea and met again, according to schedule, 
at Guam, and thence independently steamed to Manila. 

In summary, the feat accomplished shows that between the dates of December 
6, 1903, and January 18, 1904, Admiral Evans had steamed with his battleships a 
distance of eight thousand two hundred and fifty miles, the entire amount of which 
was covered in but twenty-nine sailing days, making an average speed of near twelve 
miles the hour. In that time the fleet visited five United States possessions, and dem- 
onstrated the ability of Admiral Evans to handle the situation which was then con- 
sidered of critical moment in the Orient. 

Whereas the Department highly commended the CommandeV-in-Chief for the 
work he had done, he was not a man to take the credit upon himself. At the end 
of the cruise the following Fleet Circular was issued : 

"The Commander-in-Chief congratulates the officers and men of the First 
Squadron on having made the record run for battleships. He appreciates their faith- 
ful attention to duty, and he wishes particularly to commend the fine work of the 
officers and men of the engineers' force, and will take pleasure in calling it to the 
attention of the Navy Department." 



FROM THE \M. ANTIC TO THE PACIFIC I" 

Rear Admiral Evans retained the command oi the Asiatic Fleet until M 
_ ; Ut, when aboard his flagship, the Kentucky, he sailed from Hongkong for home. 
It was then thought thai he had practically finished his sea service in the I m'teil 
States Navy, having served hi- countrj for forty-four years. His life has 
been a characteristic one, one ever imbued with activitj from the stirring dayi 
the Civil War. 

Disregarding the severitj of the wound which he received in the early part <>t 
his career, from which he lias constant!) suffered, and which perhaps would have 
prompted many another man to seek a less strenuous life, he adhered to his chosen 
profession, and it is safe to sa) that few, it any, men have given to it a more valuable 
service. 1 1 is energy and zeal won tor him a conspicuous place in the nav) while 
vet a young officer, and today the name of "Fighting Hob Evans" i- known the world 
over, as well as to every school boy throughout the I nited States. 

Upon Admiral Evans' ani\al in the United States with his Flagship Kentucky, 
contrary to public belief, he did not retire, nor did he seek a less Strenuous life 
attached to shore duty, but assumed command of the Atlantic Fleet, a position fraught 
with greater responsibilities than that attending an) position in tin- service. 

It is unnecessar) to laud the name of Rear Admiral Roble) D. Evans. II - 
work has ever stood tor itself and shown to the world his wonderful ability. Di-re 
garding the tact that his health was such as would have compelled nine men out oi 
ten to surrender completely to their ailments. Admiral Evans has retained his I 

mand through his strength of will, which ha- characterized his whole lite. When 

he retires hi- retirement will be mourned not only by the officers and men whose 
honor it has been to have served under his command, but by the people <>t the w 
United States, who will teel that the Navv will have lost one oi it- most valuable 
men since the days of Paul Jones.

*\ 1. who has never enjoyed the privilege of having served aboard one 
dt the great white battleships <>t the United States Navy cannot fully 
realize how eas} a matter it is tor one who knows the service ami the 
ships to look upon them with a feeling akin to love ami affection. 
Personifications of the shining, white vessels are not figures of speech 
with the man-oi uarsman ; they are literal. 

Sixteen powerful battleships la\ at anchor in Hampton Roads 
on Sunday, December 15, 1907. It was a day of rest, for the night before had seen 
the last stroke of work finished which placed the great fleet in readiness to brave 
the dangers and hardships of the long voyage which lay before it. The ships swung 
easily in the tide; and the fifteen thousand men aboard them were anxiousl) 
awaiting the morrow. Far, though, was it from a monotonous wait. Assembled that 
morning at quarters, all hands heard the orders that were to send the powerful fleer 
on its wonderful voyage. Hundreds of small boats and ttiL's surrounded the ships, 
laden with those whose interests were in their departure. Mothers, wives and SV 
hearts were there to bid good-bye and ban voyage to sons, husbands and lovers on 
this, the eve of their departure. Partings there were in which the sorrow only was 
that which would be forgotten to be recalled with the pleasantest memories at the 
time when again the loved ones met in the joys of reunion. Others there were who 
proudly bade bon voyage to the ships and the men — proudly because they were citizen- 
of a nation which could boast such ships and pride itself in the possession of such 
men. 

The sun had set, and darkness had settled around the harbor before the little 
boats had ceased their bus] steaming and putting between the shore and the ships. 
The buglers sounded taps; and as the last note of the call floated over the silent 
waters the ships themselves seemed to recognize the call as an order to rest in 
preparation for the busj morrow and for the long voyage that lay in front of them. 
The morning >>t December 16, 1907, will ever be re m e m bered by those who 

were serving with that great white fleet of battleships upon which the gaze of the 
world was concentrated. Ashore the representatives of the press were flashing bj 
telegraph every move of the vessels in their preparation tor departure; and with interest 
were the messages read in ever) quarter of the globe. 

In the roadstead tugs, launches and smaller boats carried the last words <>t 
farewell to and from the fleet. 

Aboard the ships there was a busy scene as all was be 
Booms were rigged in and lashed: boats were secured in their cradles: lifeboats 
were rigged out, and everything presented a scene of harmonized bust!' 
man knew what to do and he did it. Quartermasters and seamen were busy bend- 
ing bunting to the dressing lines, as the ships were to be permitted to spend their 
last morning in port in holiday attire. Unusually busy were all hands;, even for 
such a day, for the entire fleet, officers and men as well as the ships thenw 
were to be in uniform when colors would be sounded at the stroke of eight bells.

FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC 21 

There had been no hitch in the morning's preparations; there was no n< 
>ity for the making oi a single excuse tor unpreparedness ; and bel it o'clock the 

fleet was read} tor review. 

Colors sounded in unison from even ship <>t the great fleet; and as the first 
note> ot the bugles floated out upon the breeze, as though bj magic, the entire 
fleet burst into a flame ot brilliance. Uniformity oi motion prevailed; and as the 

boatswains pi^ed the dressing lines, the string; ot Minting flew to the biee/e as 
though the entire fleet had been controlled In a single line. From sixteen full 
bands the thrilling notes of the "Star Spangled Manner'* were wafted over the harlx>r 
in a wonderful symphony of harmony, as though under the direction of a sii 
bandmaster, while apparently marching to the air the national emblems rose on the 
staffs. 

Like the formation of a grand march at a fancv dress ball, the fleet rode at 
anchor in two parallel columns extending up the harbor tor full two miles. Proud 
they appeared to be of their position and attire. Confident thej seemed "t their 
readiness for review . 

Where in the history of the world lias there ever been presented such a picture? 

Is it any wonder that the officers and men ot the United States Navv are proud 
of their service and ot their ships? 

Is it am wonder that the people of the United States are proud ot their navj ' 

The last notes of the national air had hardly died when the saluting batter) 
of Fort Monroe announced the arrival of the Mayflower, bearing President Rniw 
velt and Secretary Mctca't to review the fleet, and bid good-bve to Admiral Evans,

The Mayflower was recognized bj the Commander-in-Chief of the fleet as 
she steamed past Old Point Pier, and orders were signaled from the flagship to 
stand b) to salute the nation's chief. The order, however, had been obeyed bl 
it was given, for the saluting guns' crews on even battleship had been called to 
quarters, anil each of the sixteen batteries was awaiting a gunner's order: "I-

tails waited t<> hoist them aboard to be secured against the attacks of the seas which 
might be encountered on the voyage. 

From the after bridge of the flagship came the first order of Admiral Evans 
which put the fleet in motion as, "Get under wa\ immediately, following the motion 
of the flagship," «;h hoisted from the signal yard. 

Bugles had ahead) called the crews to quarters; and as the order was re 

ceived on th* bridges of the ships of the fleet, the boatswains piped, "I p anchor." 
Men were at their stations by the anchor engines; and as the hells were sounded 
the heavj chains ascended from the water and descended to the tiered in the 
chain lockers. As the heavy chains were hove in through the hawsepipes, streams 
of water were played upon them to clean the sand from the links; and figuratively 
it appeared as though the ships were shaking the dust of Hampton Roads from off 
their feet. 

Dressing lines were hauled down; and as the ships got under w a\ the iacks 
were lowered, ensigns were handed down from the staffs and steaming flags were 
hauled to the traits. 

The ebb tide had swung the ships so as to head them into the harbor; and a 
neat piece of engineering and navigation was executed from the bridges of the 
battleships as the\ swung in obedience to their helms and responded to the action 
of the L'reat propellers, the chanjiin^ movements of which kept men busy with the 
speed cones. 

"Nn bottom at ten!" shouted the leadsmen from the chains. 'I he great fleet was 
under waj . 

From the churning of the huge propellers the whole harbor seemed lashed to 
a foam: and the black smoke that rolled in dense volume from the stacks showed 
plainly that the engineer's force was doing well its duty. 

The Mayflower had heaved up her anchor and had steamed down the harbor 
between the two lines of ships: and as each of the \cssels was passed the rails were 
manned as "Attention" was sounded on the bugle. Steaming the full length of the 
line the Mayflower came to anchor oft Thimble Shoal Light, and there remained to 
bid the last farewell to the fleet as it passed to sea. 

Not long did the Mayflower wait, for behind her had Steamed the Connecticut 
followed by the rest of the fleet, while small tugs and launches followed until the 
increasing speed of the white ship left them tar behind. 

It was an impressive scene, one that roused the spirit of patriotism in everv 
watcher and sent the blood dancing through one's veins. Dense volumes <>t black 
smoke poured from the stacks of the flagship Connecticut as she Steamed past the 
Mayflower, the immaculate white paint and the polished bras-, shining in the sun. 

Faultlessly dressed in blue, the crew manned the rail; and at the sound of 
"Attention" on the bugle the hand of everj man went to his cap to the position of 
salute. Admiral Fvans on the after-bridge with his staff came to the position of 
salute with their swords, as did the officers on the bridge and quarter-deck. The 
marine guard in full dress and with polished equipment stood on the qu.uter deck at 
Present arms," while the band played the national anthem, "t'arn on" was sounded, 
and as though in a single motion everj hand was dropped to a position of ease and 
the farewell respects were paid the President as twenty-one guns were fired bv the 
saluting battery. 

The scene aroused the martial spirit in the nation's executive; and as the ( 
necticut was broad off the beam of the Mayflower, moved by the impulse. President

To those on the shore at Hampton Roads who witnessed the departure of the 
fleet, there was given thi 1 opportunity of seeing the first act of a great drama -a great 
drama, even though the flee: were but to come to the Pacific Coast and return hi -

who having watched the departure of the fleet ma\ read the extras on the streets

The First Leg of the Voyage — The Fleet Arrives at Trinidad. 

AVING survived the excitement of the day of events jattending the 
departure from the homeland, and having prepared themselves for 
the first night at sea, the men of the great fleet could readily appre- 
ciate Wallace Irwin's "Voice From the Fleet," where he says: "We 
are off upon the briny." 

It was a Heaven-sent blessing that the formula of the cruise 
prescribed work and plenty of it, for it was work, above all things, that 
assisted in keeping the minds of those fifteen thousand men from traveling in chan- 
nels that would tend to produce indigo impressions despite the brilliant and altogether 
fascinating prospect before them. It is by no means the happiest condition to leave 
behind one all that is near and dear to one in the homeland for the uncertainties of 
the long voyage. Even the sea-stained and weather-beaten captains might well be 
pardoned for dividing their attention between the bridges and the several places 
along the shore Avhere wives and families tarried for the last parting flutter of a 
familiar handkerchief as the fleet proceeded to sea. 

There were but a few moments to ruminate upon things sentimental, there 
was little time for the purpose of holding heart-to-heart soliloquies on the relative 
merits of married or single life, or whether it is better to have a shore station or a 
sea tour to contend with. Even 'the chronic politician forgot to criticise the order 
that relieved him of his fat shore billet and ordered him to sea with Admiral Evans 
on this, the most memorable voyage in the history of the world, and one that, aside 
from its actual importance, had been brought to the center of the stage by the howl of 
the critic and the pessimist from the four corners of the earth. 

From the ravings of the "technical" and the "scientific" press voicing the 
"expert testimony," views and ideas of those whose pens consume ink for the edifica- 
tion of half the world who believe it because it is in print, one might imagine even 
Admiral Evans himself might have been hypnotized to the belief that the bottom would 
drop out of his flagship as soon as it reached a point in the sea where the leadsman 
would find twenty fathoms. 

Strange it is how many Missourians there are in the world who particularly 
desire to be shown on subjects of little direct interest to them. A pity it is that 
the Department should not have consulted the advice of sign painters, landscape 
artists and space writers in the building of our battleships instead of placing the 
work, as it did, in the hands of naval constructors and engineers. Had such been the 
case the lookouts in the cross-trees could enjoy the protection of the armor belt and 
the truck lights would have been made torpedo-proof. 

Odd, however, as it may seem a file of Admiral Evans' orders does not show 
that a watch was set to throw a life line to the fragments of armor belt that 
had washed from their places on the ship's side to drift on the high seas. The Com- 
mander-in-Chief did not think it necessary, even in heavy weather, to order life 
preservers as the uniform of the day. 

Drifting away from humor and sarcasm, however, the manipulation of the big 
fleet was no pink-tea affair, and it was up to all hands to make good in more instances 



FROM THE ATI. ANTIC TO THE PACIFIC. 27 

than one; and the magnificent proportions of the job might well weigh upon the 

minds of those responsible tor it^ execution. 

The hurry and bustle of getting the fleet under w a\ was soon over; and with 
the leaving of Hampton Roads the ceremonies attending the departure ol the fleet 
in the passing of an hour became history. The work was yet to come. 

The average man, the recruit, untutored in the ways and means in the manipu- 
lation of a niftn-ot-war on a long voyage, counted the days to come before the first 
stop, Port of Spain, Trinidad, B. W. I., and wondered how on earth (or rather, the 
sea) he would ever manage to till in the time. Those, however, who had passed 
the stage of the new broom knew exactly how they would manage it, even down 
to the last fifteen minutes of the last hour of every day, provided, of course, that they 
kept off the sick list or out of the brig — for these are two contingencies tor which one 
may not plan, or even if one does plan, plans where such unknown quantities are 
concerned are frequently doomed to miscarry. The only thitiL.' to be done is to watch 
for the routine and follow it. 

Eight bells sounded on the sixteen big ships and on as many ships was the 
word passed, "On deck, all the port watch." followed by the usual difficulty attend 
ing the mustering of the watch for the first night out. The experience of the older 
ones, however, was soon imparted to the late arrivals: and all was merry as over the 
dark waters that Boating city headed to the southward, throwing the great white 
bow-waves in a weird contrast against the inky blackness of the water which rolled 
away from the bows in that strangely fascinating w a\ which commands the attention 
of the idler, and prevents the lookout in the "eyes" from sleeping at his post. 

The watch carefully observed the dawning of the first day while the others 
stowed their hammocks and came on deck to take a peep at things, the 
sea, the sky, the ships and the place where the land ought to be but isn't. Funny 
thing it is about that land, how it will come and go at the behest of no one but the 
navigator; and, oh, my! but wouldn't just one toot of it tinder the feet of some of 
those sailors at that moment feel like something that they wanted but couldn't have? 

The weather clerk being under bonds to keep the peace served out weather that 
was "tailor made, all wool and a yard wide," weather that ought to satisfy everybody, 
yet it did not seem to do it. Did you ever notice how many knockers and kickers 
there are in the world, if you will just take a d;>v off and look around to count them? 

There was the great fleet starting out on a cruise around the world, and ev< 
body aboard being paid for doing it, touring, vet there were some — only a few — 
who actually thought that they had a kick coming. 

If we were all satisfied all the time we would still be going down to the sea in 
ships of the type of Hon Homme Richard instead of the sixteen thousand-ton leviathans 
that compare with the ships of the time of Paid Jones as does the 'jreat Aim-- 
eacle with the humming-bird. 

There were a few incidents connected with the voyage on the first relay; but 
probably the most eventful circumstance rested in the fact that nothing extraordinary 
really did happen. It seems as though the psychical concentration of so many critic* 
focused at the single point that the fleet was. might have had a crumbling effect: vet 
no armor belt dropped off, no guns shitted their mounts, the turrets remained in their 
places, the engines did not break down as soon as the ships passed beyond the si^br of 
land, and the navigators managed to keep the sbips from bumping into each other. 

The weather for the entire run was unusually pleasant. The fleet steamed generally 
in double column or in line of divisions consisting of four columns. Routine drill was 



28 WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 

pursued vigorously, during which gun drill and range finding occupied an important 
part. 

Cape Hatteras was passed at 3 :30 on the morning following the date of depart- 
ure, but there the tales of the old sea-dogs of the mountain billows and the howling 
gales which are always encountered off this, the "Cape of Storms," did not receive 
the confirmation that was fully expected by those to whom the stories had been 
told. It was then that the confidence of the rookie became shattered, c?ind he looked 
and listened to salty yarns of the old-timer with the failing of Thomas. 

It is remarkable how short a time is required in southerly travel, if one be in 
the Northern Hemisphere, to bring about a radical change in the temperature, par- 
ticularly in the course of the Gulf Stream. Each hour saw the mercury climbing 
higher; and it was but on the second day fro-n the homeland that the uniform was 
changed from blue to white. Deep down in the bottoms of clothes bags, sacred to 
attack of anything except bag inspection, the blue clothes were laid away, until the 
time when after crossing the Equator, the call of the weather man would demand that 
they again surrender themselves and be brought to the light of day. 

Steaming for the first two days at ten knots, the speed of the fleet was in- 
creased one knot an hour until after the Bahama Bank, off the southern coast of 
Florida, was passed. 

The Missouri was temporarily detached from the fleet with orders to proceed 
to San Juan, Porto Rico, for the purpose of landing Benjamin Northway, a fireman, 
suffering from peritonitis ; and on the following day the Illinois left the fleet on the 
same mission when one of her crew, C. H. Montgomery, a coal passer, suffering from 
pneumonia, was taken to the hospital at Culebra, where greater care could be given 
in nursing the unfortunate patient back to health. By detaching these two ships from 
the advancing column, Admiral Evans showed again that beneath the stern breast, 
beaten by the hardships of the service and the world for so many years, there still 
beats a kind and sympathetic heart. Everything possible for the relief of the sick 
is invariably provided by Admiral Evans, and it requires but the suggestion of the 
medical officer to receive the immediate co-operation of the stern old sea fighter. 
The two ships which had been detached upon their mission of relief rejoined the 
fleet while steaming through the Virgin Passage on the 20th. 

Saturday morning dawned clear; and in the morning order books of sixteen bat- 
tleships was written "General Field Day." There are several Generals in the service 
of the United States Navy with whom it is necessary to get acquainted, and with 
whom many become acquainted against their will — General Court, for instance. But 
there are other Generals. There are Generals who are received with different degrees 
of respect, disdain, "cussin' " and honor. To present all of these Generals would 
mean the display of too much red tape, so we will include them all by imagining 
them between the two extremes, General Court and General Liberty. The latter is 
the best fellow on the ship; yes, he is better than the skipper or, strange as it may 
appear, even the first luff. 

It was Saturday, and General Field Day was on deck directing the operation 
of holy-stones, sand and canvas, swabs and deck scrubbers-. The fleet was entering 
the Virgin Passage and the old-timer found opportunity to chin a squilgee handle 
and point out the familiar sights of the land. Away on the horizon toward the south 
he pointed out the outlines of Culebra and St. Thomas. He pointed dead ahead 
and told his listeners of the Caribbean Sea which lay surrounded by the great semi- 
circle of islands through which they were passing, St. Thomas to the south, that 



rROM THE \l LANTIC TO THE PACIFIC 






island which President (inmt might have purchased for the United States in 1870 
for $300,000 more than was pai.l for Alaska, had Congress not refused to ratifj the 
treaty; Culebra, on the starboard side as the fleet passed, with its high hills covi 
"with scrubby trees and cacti, and its lower lands devoted to the extensive culture "i 
bananas and cocoanuts. Then dead ahead he points out Sail Rock, which, like a huge 
sentinel, -rands in the center of the channel apparentlj defying the right of the big 
fleet to enter t^e pass;,-!'. Well through the passage and into the Caribbean Sea, the 
ileet skirted the coast <>t the Lesser Antilles, continuing on its course ever to the south. 

while the mercurj steadil) continued to climb higher and higher. 

Many there were who. adapting themselves to the climatic conditions, and, hav- 
ing clearly in anticipation the ceremonies to attend the crossing of the line, visited 
the ships' barbers anil deposited their hair — cut as close to the scalp as a razor could 
take it. 

A pall of sorrow tell upon the fleet <m Sunday morning when just five days 
from home R. E. Pipes, ordinarv seaman on the Kentucky, was cut down by the 
Great Reaper after a stable of hut a tew hours with pneumonia and a complication 
of spinal meningitis. At that hour of the solemn service which commended the body 
to the deep, the entire fleet hove to. ami, silenced, as the vibration of the pulsating 
engines ceased, the ensigns were hoisted and hauled to halt mast as in reverence 
the ^reat ships themselves seemed to stand as the sailor's body, weighted with heaw 
shells, was consigned to the sea to sink to its resting place beneath the wave, there t<> 
await the call ot the one Commander-in-Chief who in the last great day will pilot 
the cruise of souls to that port where there w ill he no sunken rocks and shoals. 

During the interval of the stop the several ships had drifted from formation; 

but thev were soon steaming in line, ever in the one direction. 




A BURIAF, AT SKA.

WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 



"Land, ho!" "Where away?" "Dead ahead, sir!" Such were the words ex- 
changed between the lookouts and the officers-of-the-deck on each of the big ships 
at about 5:30 on the evening of Monday, December 23d, when the headlands of 
Trinidad appeared above the horizon. 

Extending from the mainland of Venezuela, toward the east is a peninsula, 
reaching like a great arm almost clasping the outstretched hand of the Island ot 
Trinidad. Between the extended finger-tips of the two lands there fc lies a passage 
separating the Caribbean Sea from the Gulf of Paria. Through this, the Dragon's 
Mouth, the fleet steamed. Rising gradually from a sandy beach on the port side, 
the island of Chacachacaree reared to the height of six hundred feet, crowned on thii 
very summit with a lighthouse. 

Well within the Gulf of Paria, a pretty maneuver of the fleet was executed as 
the formation was changed from line to ships left into line of divisions, flagships to 
the right. Thus the fleet steamed along the coast of Trinidad, following the rugged 
hills on which reflected the glow from the setting sun as it slowly lowered behind the 
distant mountain peaks of Venezuela. 

Paling in the fast settling twilight the shore line became less distinct and the 
lights in the distance were brighter as the white ships steamed to their anchorage. 
"Come to anchor" was the signal flashed ; and the great engines ceased, while the 
huge propellers rested. Life seemed to have departed from the great boats as the 
vibration of the engines — the pulse of the ship — stopped, while slower and slower 
through the muddy water of the shallow gulf the ships seemed to glide to their 
respective positions. With the almost deafening clank of the chains as they were 
paid through the hawsepipes the care of watching closely the ship in front and the 
ship behind for a time ceased, and one day ahead of the appointed schedule the fleet 
had finished the first relay of the long cruise, having shortened the distance of the 
voyage by 1,780 miles. 

Colliers were waiting in the harbor ready to replenish the bunkers of the 
sixteen ships. Of course the colliers were in the minds of all hands; but "sufficient 
unto the day is the evil thereof," and the thought of the job before them caused the 
loss of no sleep that night. 

"Lay aft all the anchor watch to muster" had become so strange that as it 
was passed many a sailor roused, turned over in his hammock and went to sleep 
aeain.

|T WAS the da] before Christmas, and the fleet had arrived at anchor 
oft Port of Spain. Trinidad, the night before. The mid-watch found 
the cooling breezes blowing from the ocean across the island where it 
had become laden with many delicate odors. It was an ideal morn- 
ing. Toward the east the gra) of the dawn slowlj changed to ■ tint 
ot pale yellow ; and then, as only it can in a tropical sunrise, the yel- 
low surrendered to a beautiful rose as the rays of the sun shot heaven- 
ward from behind the mountains. The atmosphere was clear and keen, when the 
sun, a great red ball of (ire, broke over the hills. It is at Trinidad that the sun thus 
comes to view each morning and asks the pardon ot the people tor bringing the light 
with him —asks their pardon, please, tor awakening them so soon before it is time 
to start the races at Christmas time and their pardon tot awakening them at all in 
other seasons of the year. The sun, however, requests this apology ot hut a tew. 
really, the portion ot the population that he has managed to wake up at all is \er\ 
small indeed. A true diplomat is the sun vhen he introduces himself to the folk of 
Trinidad, lie comes in the morning with an assuring smile which reads: "I will 
not make it warm tor you today." He is a diplomat, tot though he m.n break faith 
with the people tor three hundred and sixty-four days in the year the\ are read) to 
believe him on the three hundred and sixty-fifth; and he breaks that too. The sun 
does not really begin to get busy in Trinidad until about ten o'clock, and then he tests 
strength with Mephistopheles in which they each try to 'jet to the center ot Pitch 
Lake fii- 

This eventful day before Christmas was no exception to the general rule, not 
withstanding the fact that the fleet was there with the job ot coaling staring it in the 
face. A bad job it was, and a had place to do it in : but the American sailor hanks 
on the theory that the quicker a bad job is done the better. Have you understood 



32 



WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 



this to mean that it was hot in Trinidad? Hot? By all the war gods and fire 
worshipers, it is one of the most persistent, painstaking hot places this side of that 
place Canon Farrar does not believe in. There was no need of a smoking lamp; and 
the coal was hurried from the lighters to the bunkers that it might not ignite in transit. 
Those were fortunate fellows who managed to be the first served from the colliers, 
for after ice-watering, perspiring and scoop-shoveling their way through the day they 
continued the work of washing down by the light of the search-lights, congratulating 
themselves that the work was done and that Christmas liberty could be enjoyed with- 
out the thought of the work that awaited the others on the morrow. And, just think 
of it, this was Christmas Eve. The morrow, however, bore pleasanter fruit. 

Pratique was quickly granted upon the arrival of the fleet. Had there been 
reason to quarantine the fleet, the natural heat of the place on that eve of Christmas 
would have exterminated the last foreign microbe.

CHRISTMAS DAY AT TRINIDAD. 
Sailors on the forecastle of the Vermont watching the regatta. 



When the races are on in that British colony, it means that the races are the 
one thing for the time being to absorb the entire interest of the place. Were a hostile 
fleet to threaten bombardment during a race meet the only interest that the event 
might excite over the events at the race track would be the probable request of the 
Governor that the enemy postpone his attack until after the races. 

It was during the race meet that the fleet arrived at Port of Spain. The 
arrival of sixty ships would have caused no more interest than sixteen, and so far as 
it appearing in the least an event, the sixteen ships might as well have been one. The 
people of the British West Indies enthuse when the wire drops at the race course. 

After all, why should the people of Trinidad greet the American fleet with 
outstretched arms? The American Navy and the Monroe Doctrine, too, might as 
well be in the bottom of the sea so far as they are concerned ; yet, both could be 
tolerated as long as the existence of either of them caused no inconvenience to the 
ponies or to the jockies at the race course. 



FROM THE A'l I. ANTIC TO THE PACIFIC 






Writers have written about Trinidad and about Port >>t Spain: and through all 
of such screed there runs the undertone of thought which impresses the readei with 
the belief that the people of the pretty little tropical citj are verj slow, rhese 

writers could have round actual life with which to change the tone of their local 

color had they but visited the races, tor there the\ would have found that mote than 
half of the people in attendance were at least halt awake. 

Several American bluejackets, sauntering along the street, overtook a part] of 

residents hurrying to the races. After all. what's the use.'' Everj man makes his 
own choice and it is not ours to criticise. 

Colonel Swain, Commander of the British forces, called on Admiral Evans on 
the da) following the arrival of the fleet and extended a heart] invitation to him and 
to his divisional commanders and the officers of the fleet to attend a reception at St. 
James' Barracks in the afternoon. Lad] Jackson, wife of the Governor, assisted Mrs. 




CARRIAGES AT PORT OP SPUN WAITING FOR nil. LIBERTY PART] 

Swain in receiving and the event proved a most enjoyable one to those who had the 
honor of attending. 

Rear Admirals Evans, Emory, Thomas and Sperry, with their aides, landed 

at eleven o'clock in the morning and called on the Governor, Sir Henr\ \l 

Jackson, at Government House. The Governor, attended bj his aide. Captain 
Gransuttie, formally welcomed the fleet to Trinidad. Rear Admiral Evans and 
his divisional commanders took luncheon at Queen's Park Hotel, where the\ received

people; but, as usual, the assurance failed as the hours of the day crept along and 
the pitch began to fry from the seams in the decks. Thoughts went back from 
those fifteen thousand men to the old homes in God's country, where the white 
mantles of snow covered the land, and where merry crowds of boys and girls were 
skating on the lakes and ponds. But they were there, there in Trinidad, so what 
was the use of crying over spilled milk? It was Christmas time, and as such 
they were going to make thfc best of it. Many there were in that € fleet who were 
away from home for their first Christmas; but to those came the comforting 
words of the old-timer: "Cheer up, cheer up, for the worst is yet to come." They 
were making their way in the world, securing for themselves a man's privileges in

return for a man's service, and taking with it all the heartaches of homesickness 
and the occasional fits of enforced loneliness, even though in the midst of their 
fellows. A surcease to their woes may have rested in the fact that they were 
undergoing an epoch in their lives that would enable them in years to come to 
preface a story to their grandchildren with the clause: "When I went around with 
the big fleet." 

It was early in the morning, about the time that the little ones at home would 
have been investigating the contents of their stockings and expressing their thanks to 
the good old Santa Claus, who had so generously obeyed the requests written on 
the little letters and deposited in the chimneys. Yes, it was very early, before "all

he had received the night before: 

"Washington, D. C, December 24, 1907. 
"Evans, Port of Spain, Trinidad: 

"The Department extends to you, officers and men under your command, the 
best wishes for a Merry Christmas. • Mbtcalf." 

To adapt nimself to circumstances, to be contented in whatever surroundings 
he may find himself, is the first lesson that the American man-oi-warsman learns. 
Detachments had gone ashore the day before and had returned to the ships with

from which the snow had been shaken, but, nevertheless, the Christmas spirit was 
in them. The Christmas spirit was in the men as the palms were hoisted to truck 
and yard-arm. Ships, which the day before were enveloped in the black clouds "t 
coal dust, during the night, as though by magic, shed their grimy coats and now 
shone clean and white in the morning sun, and, decorated from stem to stern. 
from water-line to truck, were in uniform of the day. Every man. in the cleanest 
white, was ready to forget that lie was aw a\ from the fireside scenes of the homeland 
and to join in the merrymaking of the hour. What mattered it though they were 
in a foreign country? There was a good-sized American city all by itself, and by 
itself could it celebrate. Where a few Americans are gathered together anywhere 
for any purpose, circumstances nr conditions are seldom allowed to interfere, at 
least such has been the case ever since Boston Harbor was used for a teapot.

Things in one's own line are the first thought of, so it was natural that the first 
thing to be included in the celebration of the day should have been the regatta, the 
boat races in which every ship was entered. Although just in from the voyage, there 
was no difficulty in finding crews to man the various boats for the events of the 
morning; and even the pelting rays of a relentless sun were not sufficient to dis- 
suade the men from their purpose to hold the regulation Christmas regatta. With 
arms bared to the blistering sun, the crews of the several boats retponded to the 
cheers of their shipmates during the course of the events with double effort to win 
the race. It was not, however, possible for them all to win, and winning or losing 
all boats' crews were cheered on their return to their ship after a race had been 
pulled. In the chief petty officers' race, of one mile, in cutters, the Kentucky won 
by half a boat length, the others finishing in the following order: Vermont, 
Alabama, Illinois, Kearsarge, New Jersey, Connecticut and the Minnesota. The 
Rhode Island won the one mile gig race. The Louisiana won the race for dingeys. 




PALACE OF THE GOVERNOR OF TRINll'AD 



Following the races came the Christmas dinner, which consisted of "everything 
from soup to nuts," not omitting the roast turkey and cranberry sauce. Packages 
had been delivered aboard the ships before they sailed from Hampton Roads, the 
donors having exacted the promise that they would not be opened until Christmas. 
Hundreds of these packages contained the real flavor of home and of real Christmas, 
too, as the unwrapping of the covers revealed the contents of plum puddings and 
other things that mother had made. With all of these additions right from home, 
the cold-storage turkey and the canned cranberries did not seem so bad as they 
might. 

"Lay aft all the liberty party!'' The old-timers gathered on the quarterdecks 
to watch the liberty parties called over the gangways, occasionally venturing the 
remark: "If you had been in the navy as long as I have you would pass this burg

The authorities in Port (>: Spain had read in some hook about the Bailors

look of disappointed anticipation on their faces when they saw the orderly lot of 
men leave their boats, engage the best means of transportation and order their 
coachmen to take them to the various points of interest about the place. 

It may have been Christmas, the races or the genera] custom which moved the 
people of Trinidad, who ably sustained their reputation of being asleep, for 
they certainly were asleep to the realization that there were live or ten thousand 
men there for the principal purpose of spending money, who were frustrated in their 
purpose at ever) turn bv the sign "Closed.'' 

There is no individuality in Trinidad: the Governor is sent there from the 
mother country; and whatever he be the people are satisfied with him. The) 

are satisfied with everything from the fact that it would require the exertion of too 

much energ) to be dissatisfied. If one were to attempt to compare Port of Spain 
with some other place on the face of this big world, in tr> inu to get a simile

The center of gravity was the racecourse, mi it was there that the cars 
stopped; it was there that the coachmen discharged their passengers, and it was 
there that the pedestrian, by the law of gravitation, found his way. Those race-. 
they are the funniest things you ever saw ; in the first place they run backward 
that is according to the Yankee notion — then there comes the double combination 
of betting, pools and sweepstakes. It is no wonder that the people should dismiss 
the cares of business in order to devote themselves undividedly to the various 
combinations at the racecourse if they would win on each shilling that they placed 
"ii their favorites, copper, straight up, across the board, sin bast os, or easy. Some

street car line, saw all there was to be seen, did all there was to be done: and then 
in desperation sent oft to the ships for their balls and bats and amused themselves 
in their time-honored way playing ball. Several ball games were going on at the 
same time under the lee of the race track grand stand: and at times it was a difficult 
matter for the crowd at the races to hear themselves shout when a favorite finished 
first, if it happened that at the same moment some one at the other end of Queen's 
Park made a two-base hit. As soon as the ball games started the men of the lib

parties had no further desire to roam the streets of the city, for there was interest 
for them — and they were good games, too. Several Trinidadians left the race track 
and wandered to the outer edge of the sward to watch the American sailors play 
Yankee cricket. 

Port of Spain offered no charm to the liberty parties, and the fresher air of the 
harbor, a clean hammock on axlean ship presented a greater attraction than the stuffy, 
hot twice-breathed atmosphere of the city. It is therefore no wondef' that the men 
returned to their ships before their liberty was up. The native fruit vendors were 
the only ones awake to the opportunities that rested in the patronage of the sailors, 
and they did a rushing business. Fruit was cheap, that is it looked cheap, even 
though a double price was charged for it to conform with the sailor's generosity.

Trinidad handed the sailors a lemon, not only a lemon but a whole lot of them 
and limes too, and alligator pears. In fact, when the liberty parties returned to the 
ships they had enough limes with them to equip the scuttle butt with lemonade for 
a month, and enough alligator pears were added to their sea stores to last as long 
again. 

The Governor and the chief of constabulary were so surprised when they learned 
that the fifteen thousand men in the American fleet were gentlemen instead of the 
lot of salty toughs they had expected them to be, that they were dumfounded ; and 
the newspapers which had anticipated something in the way of sensation to vary the 
monotony of cricket scores, could only say that the fleet came, coaled and went, prom- 
ising that the next time it happened around that way they would open the stores.

So surprised was the Governor when he ascertained that the personnel of the 
Beet represented the nation's besi men he addressed a letter to the Commandei 
Chief nt which the following is an excerpt: 

"I ask to In- allowed to utter im congratulations on the irreproachable belia 
of your men on lease. A residence for years at Gibraltar, a rendezvous <>t the Beets

It is not only in the conduct of the men that the cruise of the fleet has corn 

erroneous impressions.

Chapter IV 




From Trinidad to Rio de Janeiro — New Year's Day at Sea — Crossing 

the Line. 

r 

T TOOK but a few days for all hands thoroughly to fnspect all that 
there was of interest to them in Port of Spain, and before the date 
of departure the men, and apparently the ships, had become restless 
and anxious to proceed on the voyage. It was four o'clock, however, 
in the afternoon of Sunday, December 29th, that the signal came 
from the flagship, "Up anchor." The order had been anticipated 
for some time and made itself manifest in the great clouds of black 
smoke which poured from the funnels of the sixteen great ships. Simultaneously 
with the hoisting of the signals, chains ascended through the hawse-pipes until the 
forty-five fathoms were hove in, the anchors were aweigh in a remarkably short time, 
and retracing the course over which they had entered the Gulf of Paria, the fleet 
steamed in line through the Dragon's Mouth, leaving the Lesser Antilles behind. 

The fleet was soon riding again on the bosom of the Atlantic, bound southward 
for its next stop, Rio de Janeiro. For the first two days nothing of importance 
occurred, and the regular routine of work and drill was becoming a bit monotonous, 
intensified by the ever-climbing mercury. 

It is not that the holiday is a rare occurrence that the men in the navy make 
the most of it, but it is the cessation of routine, the general thing on all holidays, 
which allows Jack the opportunity of thinking of other things. He is of an inventive 
turn of mind, and his exuberance must have an outlet. 

Were a quartermaster or a marine time orderly so far to forget himself and 
conduct himself in such an unseamanlike manner as ever to strike the bell more than 
eight strokes, he would immediately make himself ridiculous in the eyes of all of 
his shipmates, and for so doing he would be held as a subject of scorn. 

There is one time, however, each year when the time of the day is indicated 
aboard a battleship by more than eight strokes of the bell, and that is on New Year's 
Eve, when the quartermaster strikes eight bells for the departing year and eight more 
immediately following to herald the birth of the new. New Year's Eve was fair 
and bright with the fleet as it steamed on its southern course, eight degrees north of 
the Equator, and about five hundred miles off the east coast of Venezuela, almost 
opposite the mouth of the Orinoco River. Luminous bow-waves rolled away from 
each of the great ships as they ploughed their way through the phosphorescence. 

The old-timer knew what would happen at the stroke of sixteen bells on this 
memorable occasion, and early in the evening he had canvassed the ship, advising the 
untutored of the ways of the navy on New Year's Morn. The cooks were told of 
the condition in which they would find their pots and pans on the following morning, 
if they were not secured for sea; and bandsmen cautiously hid their instruments from 
the eyes of the brigade which had inaugurated a search of the ship for instruments 
of any kind with which the most noise could be made. In many instances the most 
sacred hiding places, however, were not selected well enough to hold the sought for 
treasures, and on two of the ships the drummers mourned the fact that the following 
morning found the heads of their bass drums most sadly fractured. 



FROM THE All. ANTIC TO THE PACIFIC 41 

To sleep from the old year t<> the new is a physical tmpossibilitj aboard an 
American man-of-war. At the stroke oi the firsi eight of the sixteen bells the entire 
bugle squad sounds reveille. It there be a sailor on that ship who does not respond 
to the call he is soon doomed to he forcibly advised of his neglect; and with bugles, 
drums, pans, horns of everj description, rattles, devil's fiddles, and everything upon 
which a noise can be made, a brigade starts from tin- bridge, makes its ua\ forward 
on the starboard side and aft on the port, thus canvassing each deck. All sleeping 

tonus in its wake must "rise and shine, and show a leg with a boot on." lore am! 

aft, regardless of position, no par: of the shi;> except the sick baj is sacred to the 
attack of the merrymakers. Admirals on the flagships an- advised b\ the noisy, 
merry throng that a new year has been ushered into being. Sickness is the onl] 

excuse by which a man can save himself from being turned out on New Year's 
Morn. This ceremony requires less than half an hour, when the brigade returns to 
its point of start, the buglers sound taps; and then silence again reikis until every- 
body is turned out in the official way to ^reer the New Year at all hands in the 
morning. 

For the lirst several days of the new year there was little to do but drill and work 
And watch the mercury rise. Land was sighted off the starboard bow. Navigators 
observed the land with glasses from the bridge. It was there to be sure. but. consult 
ing their charts, nothing in the form of the island thus located appeared. Why such 
a prominent island on which were growing palms and tropical foliage should have 
been overlooked bv the Geodetic Surveys ami by ships continually passing over this 
route, as they must repeatedly have passed this menace to navigation, without duly 
reporting it on arrival in the next port, seemed a strange thing to the navigators 
who knew well the necessit} of making known to the maritime world all rocks and 
shoals which might be discovered thus. Consulting the charts, however, it Was 
learned that the fleet was steaming off the mouth of the great Amazon River, and 
this was but one of the many floating islands which become detached from the 
banks of the river hundreds of miles in the interior ot Brazil. 

On the banks ot the Amazon the tropical jungle of foliage is so dense that the 
mots become a solid, tangled mass. As the river bends its serpentine course the con- 
stant wearing of the water washes the soil from beneath the roofs ot the dank \ 
tation along its bank-. These frequentlv drop, unsupported, in great masses, often in 
extent ecpial to an acre, and Boating slowl) down the muddj stream finally drift t>> 
sea. These islands have been encountered at sea main hundreds ot miles from the 
mouth of the river, and it is not infrequent that upon them have been found serpents 
and animals which have been carried as passengers from the interior ot Brazil. 

( )n the 4th day ot January another important event occurred, one which all 
sailors do not have the opportunity ot surviving. Darkness had settled over the 1 
on the evening of this day as the fleet approached the Equator. A strange sort ot 

stillness seemed to have fallen over the sea. Not a breath ot air was stitrin-. The 
same phosphorescent waters seemed to radiate the heat stored during the dav from 
the sun's relentless raj s. Weird it seemed as streaks ot light here and there burst 
from the surface of the water as a porpoise or a dolphin darted across the bow of a 
ship or followed parallel with it for some distance, apparently in a test ot speed. It 
was earthquake weather, as the landlubber would term it. It was a condition which 
fostered expectance in the breast of the thousands on watch. The bands on the 



42 WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 

teen ships had been rendering their nightly concerts and had ceased playing, doubly 
accentuating the silence which followed, and making it more impressive. 

"Ship ahoy!" came a cry from the deep. To those who had visited this region 
before the voice was well known, and the thought of disobeying such an order was 
the most remote. 

"Aye, aye, sir," came ther simultaneous reply from the sixteen ships. 

Sixteen messengers of the Court of His Majesty, Neptunus Rex*" had been dis- 
patched to intercept the fleet, to warn all hands of the penalty to be meted to 
those who without initiation dared to enter the sacred realm of His Majesty. 

"What ship is this?" was asked of each of the sixteen. 

Knowing well the danger in delay on such an important occasion, the officers-of- 
the-deck on the several ships responded with the name of the ship, her commander, 
and mission. 

"I come in the name of His Majesty, Neptunus Rex," shouted the messenger. 
"Heave to. at once." 

Probably no one but a sailor who has crossed the Equator can ever imagine the 
dignity of the king of that realm. His importance might be considered by the layman 
when it is known that even his messengers are received by twenty-four side boys 
and a blare of trumpets. It was thus that Neptune's messengers were received aboard 
the ships on this evening as they climbed out of the water over the bow and made 
their way to the bridges. 

Who these slaves of Neptune might have been it is difficult to tell, or their deeds 
of disobedience, for which they suffered the great transformation. They had at one 
time evidently been human, but disregarding the royal wishes of His Majesty on 
some occasion they had been held as his slaves. Of odd shapes they were, with bright 
eyes and long hair, and voices with a wonderful power of penetration. Their feet 
were double the size of the ordinary mortal and terminated in three long toes, webbed 
like a frog. They wore the regalia of the Court of Neptune, and though menials in 
their own element, they were rulers aboard the ships. To them admirals bowed in 
obeisance. With hearty handshakes the messengers were received on the bridges by 
the officers-of-the-decks. It was wise of the commanding officers of each ship that on 
this night they had placed on watch men who had been before in the realm of 
Neptune. 

"Avast there, me hearty! Methinks I have seen your face in these waters before. 
If it be true, you perchance will escape the dire pains and penalties to be inflicted 
upon those unlucky mortals who are about to enter the domain of His Serene Majesty 
Neptune without having previously secured his permission. I am the bearer of a most 
important message from my August Monarch to your Captain. I desire to speak 
with him at once. I have also a large quantity of mail for his men which would 
please His August Majesty to have delivered immediately." 

From the folds of his imperial garb the messenger withdrew a leathern pouch, 
containing a letter for every man aboard the ship, who had not previously been 
initiated into the mysteries of this great domain. Messengers of the ship, masters-at- 
arms, and orderlies were immediately ordered into the service of the messenger to 
do his bidding, and the pouch was delivered to the mail orderly. The crew was 
mustered on the starboard side of the ship, and to each was delivered the following 
subpoena : 



FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC 43 

"Domain of His Majesty, Neptunus Rex, Equatorial Region,

"Attest: Davy Jones." (Seal.) 

As the Messenger of His Must August Majesty, Neptune, was supervising the 
delivery of the subpoenas the officer-of-the-deck announced that the captain would 
receive him at once, and excused himself for his duties on the bridge, knowing well 
the necessity of careful navigation and persona! attention to detail in .order that sail- 
ing regulations be complied with while steaming in the vicinity or through the domain 
of Neptune. 

The captains in all cases submissively obeyed the order of His Majesty's mes- 
senger, and came immediately within his presence, as ordered.

ist Sovereign, Neptunus Rex, who welcomes you on this your return to his 
Empire. His Majesty further instructs me to sa\ that he remembers well your pre-

officers who have never before been in our Aqueous Kingdom; and finally. Captain, 
I have the honor to inform you that His Serene Majesty, Neptunus Rex, accompanied 
by his complete suite will do your good ship the honor of a visit at 1 '30 p. m. 
tomorrow ." 

With a blare of trumpets the messenger passed aft between twenty-four side 
boys, and over the stern he dropped into water. A long streak of phosphorescent 
light showed in his wake as he darted through the water in the direction of the 
French tramp. 

Those unfortunates who had received the subpoenas from His August M 
slept but little during the night, as they dreamed of the awful torture with which 
they were to be inflicted on the following day. However. the\ were in e 
anticipation, and like the true sailor anxious to get a bad job done. 

As the sun arose, a blazing ball, clear from the deep, blue sea on that eventful 
5th dav of January, the fleet was ploughing along up the hill which led to the 
Equator. It was Sunday and all hands had been called aft to general muster. That 
evolution, however, had been hurried through, particularly on those ships where the 
paymasters themselves had been ordered to appear before His Majesty. A fitting 
throne and court room had been arranged at which to receive His Ma jest) and his 
retinue when they might arrive. Full well did the initiated ones know the penalty 
which would have been inflicted had Neptune come to a ship which had tun been 
duly prepared to receive him.

On the morning of the 7th a black speck was sighted to eastward, barelj rising 
above the hoftzon. This peculiar object was sighted bj tin- officere-of-the-deck on 

several of the ships :it the same time. It was apparently a wreckage of «■ sort, 

and with powerful glasses it was noticed that it carried a cargo of human freight, 
possibly it might have been a party of sailors who tor manj Ion- days had drifted, 

without food or water, beneath the relentless heat of the tropical Run.

The location of the wreck was communicated to the flagship, and the supply 
ship Culgoa was dispatched, by order of Admiral Evans, to proceed to tin- scene and 
rescue the survivors. The Culgoa was watched as she went on her mission of ni< 
and much was the surprise of the anxious watchers as the\ saw tin- ship return to 

its position with the fleet, leaving the castaways still on their raft. Expression 
censure were uttered, but such ceased, however, when on the return of the v. ulgOfl 
it was learned that the castaways were natives trom Cape St. Roque, and were out 
on a fishing excursion almost a hundred miles trom shore in a boat which might 
have collapsed or gone to the bottom in the least sea or gale. 

The old-timer knew before the CulgOfl left the formation that it was a native 
Brazilian boat toward which the rescuing ship was headed. Although the natives

on the Brazilian Coast venture far into the sea in small boats, their deeds of daring 
do not approach those of the Chinese fishermen, who in small sampens go for three 
hundred and four hundred miles to sea in whatever direction their fishing takes them. 

The "Brazilian Bugle" was rounded on the 7th, and the course of the fleet was 
changed to the direction of Rio de Janeiro. As the sun was rising on the morning 
of the 12th land was sighted ftfi the starboard bow and at 8:30 the fleet was steam- 
ing with Cape Frio off the beam. A great cliff it is, towering five Hundred feet in 
height, surmounted by a solitary light-house. This beacon is the sixty-mile post from 
Rio de Janeiro. The Yankton, which had preceded the fleet, had arrived at Rio de 
Janeiro, and here, returning, had met the fleet with messages. Communications were 
exchanged with the busy little tender, while for the first time in the previous 
fifteen days the propellers on the big ships ceased for an interval of several minutes 
while the Yankton was delivering her messages to the flagship. 

Rio de Janeiro, the most beautiful harbor in the world, had appeared in the 
minds of these fifteen thousand men, and those who were now about to realize their 
ambition of visiting the beautiful port, crowded the forecastle immediately after dinner, 
for it was then that the outlines of the harbor first became visible with the aid of 
a glass. 

Three Brazilian cruisers stood out of the harbor and, after having proceeded a 
distance of about sixteen miles, met the object of their mission. As the three Bra- 
zilian ships passed abreast the Connecticut, the American flag was broken on the fore, 
while the Flagship Barroso fired a salute of twenty-one guns. This salute was 
answered by the Flagship Connecticut. Following the Barroso came the Tamoyo 
and the Tupy. It could plainly be seen that the Brazilians were hearty and whole- 
souled in their reception of the fleet. As the three Brazilian boats steamed by the 
long line of American ships, bands were on the quarter-decks playing "The Star 
Spangled Banner," while the bands on our own vessels returned the national air of 
Brazil. 

It was 3 :40 in the afternoon when the fleet entered the channel. Sugar Loaf 
Rock, that great sentinel towering to a height of six hundred feet perpendicularly 
from the water's edge, was passed to port, while on the starboard side were the frown- 
ing shore batteries built on receding ledges against the face of the mountain. 
The entrance to the harbor of Rio de Janeiro suggests the strength of Gibraltar. 
Fortifications and frowning guns were apparent on every hand. Passing into the 
entrance of the harbor it appears as though one were entering a great arena, or a 
Grecian theatre, the harbor apparently forming the orchestra and the stage, while 
boats of all kinds, sizes and odd shapes, passing busily to and fro, seemingly might be 
the performers in some wonderful play, while receding from the water's edge the 
great amphitheatre, formed by the mountain sides, stands tier on tier overlooking the 
great stage. 

Looking at the beautiful harbor before them as the ships, now at half speed, 
steamed toward their anchorage, it required no keen or vivid imagination to pic- 
ture the old castles of Spain, as here on the mountain sides domes and turrets of 
stone peered above the beautiful foliage, surmounted by the gorgeous green and yellow 
ensigns of the nation, which added brilliance and color to the scene. 

When within the harbor, again came the firing of salutes, during which the 
towering mountains echoed and reverberated with the roar of the guns, while bands

at the forts were playing continuously. The whole citj ua> dressed in holidaj attire. 
Wharves and clocks were lined with thousands oi people who bad gathered t<> watch 
the arrival of the Meet, while excursion boats, crowded to their guards, steamed about 
the harbor. The air of it all seemed as though it were more heart) welcome than 
curiosity which occasioned the gathering of so man) to view the arrival of the great 
tleet. an unprecedented event in the history of Rio de Janeiro. 

Ten minttes after the fleet had passed the Sugar Loaf came a roaring clank, a- 
sixteen great anchors drew the rattling chains through the hawse-pipes, A different 

aspect was presented here, as the sailors Standing about the forecastle compared the 
vista before them with that of the port they had recent!) left. Coal, of course, was 
the next thing, but they could cheerfully look beyond that in anticipation of the 
pleasant few days to be had ashore, of which the surrounding conditions assured them.

Clhaiptter V 




Tin Fi i i r \ r Rio in Jwi iro. 
U I \ I R the uates of a Cl'tJ were thrown open to quests, or the hand 

nt welcome heartil) extended to its visitors, that condition prevailed 
at Rio tie Janeiro during the sta) ot the Atlantic Fleet in the capital 
of Brazil; ami it the people of two nations ever fraternized, it waa 
done by the people ot the two American republics on this memorable 
occasion. Welcome was read at everj point in the harbor anil it 

floated from the hillsides before the licet dropped its anchors in the 
deep blue waters ot the hay. The hand ot the whole ot Brazil was extended in we! 
come to the visiting fleet; and it truly seemed as though President lYnna came close 

to the point when he made the remark that the people ot the United States and the 
people of Brazil were brothers ot the heart. 

It rested with the head ot the Brazilian nation to hold the honor ot extending 
the first welcoming function to the licet when he tendered a reception at his residence 
to its officers. Mr. Irving B. Dudley, the American minister, presented the officers 
of the fleet to the president. The function was attended In government officials anil 
naval and militarv officers, as well as the social elite ot the city. The grounds were 
beautifully decorated in the national colors of the United States and Brazil, and a 
marine band discoursed American and Brazilian music during the event. During the 
evening following the arrival of the fleet, while Minister Dudley was giving a dinner 
in honor of the commanding officers of the fleet at the beautiful suburb, IYtropolis. 
the people of the city were showing their enthusiasm bv sending up a glorious display 
of fireworks from the waterfront, and in honor of their guests the Brazilian men- 
of-war in the harbor were ablaze with electric illumination. \ grand ball was ten- 
dered at the Crystal Palace at IYtropolis bv the Diario Club of Rio dc Janeiro, 
attended by over a hundred officers of the fleet and the elite ot the city and the sub- 
urbs. The entire stay of the fleet was characterized by a continuous round of social 
gayety. 

After the formal reception of the officers ot the fleet, the following telegrams 
were exchanged between the presidents ot the two republics: 

"Petropolis. January 14. 1908. 
"President Theodore Roosevelt, Washington: 

"This afternoon I had the great pleasure of receiving and becoming personally 
acquainted with the admirals and captains of the American fleet < /; rout, to the 
Pacific Ocean. 

"I congratulate you on the successful arrival ot so powerful and well-drilled a 
fleet at Rio de Janeiro, and I take keen pleasure in informing you that the people 
of our capital spontaneously and enthusiastically joined the Brazilian naval authori- 
ties from the very first moment in the demonstration of fraternity and friendship 
toward the American sailors and the great republic of the North, for whose u'lory 
all Brazil utters the most cordial wishes. 

(Signed) "ALFONSO I'iwv. President of Brazil." 



S_> WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 

President Roosevelt's reply was as follows: 

Washington, January 15, 1908. 
''President Alfonso Penna, Rio de Janeiro: 

"I thank you for the kind message which you were so good as to send me upon 
the arrival of the American Meet at Rio. It has given me and will give to the Amer- 
ican people the liveliest satisfaction. We are all very sensible of the courtesy and 
distinguished hospitality with which the government and people «f Brazil have 
received our officers and sailors. The warships of America exist for no other purpose 
than to protect peace against possible aggression and justice against possible oppres- 
sion. As between the United States and Brazil the^e ships are not men-of-war, but 
are messengers of friendship and good-will, commissioned to celebrate with you the 
long continued and never to be broken amity and mutual helpfulness of the two 
great republics. (Signed) Theodore Roosevelt." 

Rio de Janeiro presented a far different appearance to the people of the Atlantic 
Fleet from that which they had expected to see. The preparations of the various 
reception committees had been well made before the arrival of the fleet, and carried into 
effect when the ships arrived. A large building near the landing had been converted 
into an information bureau for the sailors, and there any information could have 
been obtained regarding the departure of trains and boats for the suburbs, places ot 
amusement and all points of interest. The reception committee conducted an 
exchange bureau, where American money could have been changed to the currency 
of Brazil without the necessary payment of the general brokerage charged in the 
exchange shops. Some ceased to wonder where the city got its name when they felt 
the load of money they were obliged to carry in their pockets — January, the month 
of money. The mints of Brazil must of necessity work overtime. Some there were 
who returned to the ships in the boats they came ashore in when they were confronted 
with the price-tags to the effect that a glass of lemon squash could be obtained for 
the modest sum of $160. A suit of clothes prominently displayed in a clothing store 
bore a tag which announced to the passing public that it could be purchased for the 
modest sum of $50,000. It is natural to suppose that such a condition would have 
taken the wind out of some of the bluejackets' sails, particularly as many of them had 
come ashore with only a couple of hundred to spend. Confidence, however, was soon 
restored in the financial centers when it was learned that one American dollar was 
equivalent to 3200 reis, and that the rei is indicated in Brazil by the mark used in 
the United States to indicate the dollar. So in Brazil a glass of beer costs $160; 
people cheerfully pay $640 for a shave, and $3,200 for a very good meal. 

The magnificence of the city certainly surprised many who arrived at Rio expect- 
ing to see the average type of a tropical Spanish city. .Many were no less than amazed 
when they saw the beautiful architecture of the buildings and the cleanliness of the 
streets and pavements. The general appearance of Rio de Janeiro is far ahead of 
Mie average North American city, showing conclusively that the grafters had dipped 
but lightly into the treasury, if they had dipped at all. Beyond question, the munici- 
pality has expended public funds in a wise and far-seeing manner. Many of our 
cities in the United States could take a valuable lesson from Rio de Janeiro. 

Avenida Central, the principal thoroughfare of Rio, is a marvel of neat, mag- 
nificent buildings, most elaborate in architecture. It seems as if energy and ingenuitj 
had been exhausted to make them as costly as possible; at all events, the matter ot 
expense was a secondary consideration. Great pillars ol solid granite and marble 
grace the corners and tin- entrances to the gilded alcoves and domes. High ceiled

with balconies, the interiors of these buildings are decorated beyond one's dreams. 
The pavements exhibit a beautiful series of scroll-work designs done in black and 
white, and slate and brown mosaic. 

Corcovado Mountain seems to rise out of the city, a great guardian ever watch- 
ing over it ; at its base Rio boasts the most beautiful botanical gardens in the world. 
The Zoological Gardens were much frequented by the visitors, and such of the ani- 
mals as the keepers allowed to be fed fared well at the hands of the bluejackets. 

The parks of Rio are pleasing, ever made with the purpose of relieving the city 
of that great monotonous "tier on tier" that we see in other cities of the world where 
real estate values keep the houses crowded together and piled up toward the sky. 

Corcovado Mountain was literally invaded by the liberty parties as special trains

wound round and round the precipitous face, and straight up in places to the summit 
of the needle-like mountain to the height of 2,300 feet above the sea. What a won- 
derful view there was unfolded before the eyes of those who made the ascent of Cor- 
covado. Beneath lay the city and the harbor like a great crazy-quilt of a thousand 
colors. It was a view as the bird sees it. The roofs of the houses protruded through 
the foliage of the trees, varying in the city the monotony of the carpet of foliage. 
Tall chimneys discharged great clouds of black smoke, which by favor of the wind 
was blown to sea, relieving the landscape of a hazy atmosphere. In the harbor peace- 
fully the great engines of war, there on a visit of friendship, a visit that will ever 
cement the feeling of friendship in common with these two American republics, a 
feeling of friendship that has grown steadily stronger since Secretary Root carried

the sentiments oi the I nited States to the people <>t Brazil in 1906 at the Pan 
American Congress, binding forever the hearts oi the two nations. 

The visit of the American fleet has well been termed ;i friendl) invasion, foi a 

literal invasion it was. American sailors could have been seen in all parts oi the 
city and suburbs, on excursions both by boat and train. The proprietor of t lie hotel 
on Corcovado, on the arrival of his first installment o^ visitors from the licet, found 
that he had OOT sufficiently provided tor so many appetites whetted b) the exhilaration 
of the ride to the summit. However, he managed to make out by the judicious admin- 
istration of water to the soup, and by a diplomatic reduction in the size of the lie ps 
of each of the five courses of the dinner served in the Portuguese Style. The lirst 
parties only had their ration thus reduced, tor the later arrivals found abundance. 

To man] of the sailors this was their first experience in a countrj where it 
required other than a knowledge of the mother tongue in order to make themselves

understood, and some of the attempts at linguistic enunciation were interesting as 
well as amusing. One particular!) amusing illustration of this was enacted in a 
jeweler's shop on Avenida Central, where two men of the Connecticut were arrang 
ing tor the repair of a watch : 

"Watch me throw the 'Spiggoty' lingo into this fellow. " said one as the\ entered 
the store. Engaging the first clerk in sight he began: "Say, mirror you sta\ . sabe 
my watch is on the bum mucho plent] : you query fixem pronto, ( 

"Sure. Mike." replied the clerk, "what is the matter with it — been using i- 
a heaving lead 5 " 

"Where in blazes did you learn United States?" questioned the surprised sailor. 

"I was born anil raised in New York," replied the clerk. "Been here tor fifteen 
years. How is the little old burg, anyway?" 

That officers and men alike were accorded a royal welcome in Rio can parti) 
be seen in the accompanying outline of the program of entertainment:

January 13, 1908: Reception to the officers of the fleet by the President of 
Brazil, Alfonso Penna, at his residence; banquet to the officers of the fleet given by 
United States Ambassador Irving B. Dudley, at the American Embassy. 

January 14: Luncheon at Corcovado by the Brazilian Navy. 

January 15: Luncheon by the President at Petropolis, and garden party at the

committees was placed aboard the Minnesota where a grand formal reception was 
given. The decoration of the big ship rested in the hands of Henry Reuterdahl. 
Though his education on the subject of armor belt may have been a bit neglected, this 
much talked of gentleman has certainly mastered the art of landscape gardening and 
hall decorating, and when it comes to distributing gay bunting, flowers and palms 
with artistic effect Henry Reuterdahl is in his element. The quarterdeck of the big 
battleship was literally converted into a fairy garden as boatloads of palms and 
flowers brought from the shore were artistically placed about the ship in avenues, 
while occasional shady bowers suggestive of tete-a-tetes and moonlight nights were 
conveniently placed off the line of traffic. From the life lines of the ship were 
artistically draped the fla^s of all nations and the bunting of the ship, and the forecastle 
and superstructure as well as the quarterdeck bore the touch of the same decorative 
hands. Beneath the great guns of the after turret there had been made a goldfish 
pond in the center of which sparkled a beautiful fountain. On coming aboard the 
Minnesofa one could not realize that one was aboard a battleship. It was more like

being in ;i beautiful garden, but down below where the guests were shown the 
that tlic\ were <.ti a battleship couM not be disguised. 

What a different scene the ship then presented, as the ladies of Rio passed 
leisurely about the ship or waltzed on the waxed decks to the music of orchestras in 
ever) part of the ship, from that of the bus) days of drill, when men arc rushii 
rlieir stations at general quarters or clearing the shipper action. It pretty women 
and handsome %owns are objects for admiration, the Minnesota spent that afternoon 
and evening in admiring. 

The days of teres and sight-seeing came quickly to an end and the ships ., 

prepared for sea. 

1 he excitement of the occasion being over the people of the fleet had an 

opportunity to take stock of themselves and each other, and to laugh at the curios 

the other fellow had possessed himself of in Rio. Strange it is how different men do

their shopping, and strange the different tales the) will have to tell after their visits 
to the same places. Pictures offered a large field of investment tor main : others 
invested in humming-birds' heads mounted on plaster of pan's, while others exchanged 
their surplus coin tor various kinds of Brazilian beetles. Others could show nothing 
more tangible tor their disbursements than street car rides and lemon squash. Fruit? 
"t is. everybody bought fruit: and the pineapples lasted until the fleet had reached the 
Strait of Magellan. 

The American sailor must have made a strange impression on the Brazilians; 
but. on the other hand, the Brazilian made a strange impression on the American 
sailor. Both had depended on the stor) books for their knowledge of the other, and 
they both had read the wrong books. We generally find that we do get hold of the 
wrong books when we try to learn about a people without seeing them ourselves. 

That the reception of the fleet in Rio de Janeiro was more hearty than formal 
was clearly obvious by the voice of the pres-. 



58 



WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 



Upon the arrival of the fleet a special American edition of the Diario de Com- 
mercio appeared with the great headlines: "Tex Thousand Welcomes to the 
American Fleet." 

Whereas the cartoonist saw the humorous side of the men ashore and so depicted 
the sailors in a humorous light, the tore of the press was that of praise for the men. 

As the fleet left Rio the, Corrieo da Noite, the leading paper of Rio, published 
the following under the headline "Au Revoir": 6 

"To the officers and men of the American fleet, we say, au revoir, not farewell. 
We know that you will come back again, that we will again clasp you by the hand 
with the same fraternal greeting with which we received you. The sympathy that 
we have for so many years felt for you, which we may say actually commenced when 
YOU, the first nation to do so, stretched out your hand and welcomed us — a new 
republic, increased in intensity when your great statesman, Mr. Elihu Root, came 
among us and captured all our hearts, to the present time when we feel it with us 
you have not only completed the task commenced but taken our hearts with you which 
were only on parole. So, we wish you a most prosperous voyage, and, you may be 
sure, we will watch with anxiety the news that you have arrived safely at your 
destination, and no matter whatever the future may bring forth, you can rest assured 
that here, in Brazil, you have as true friends as those you have left at your hearthstones 
in North America."

ll()l cm it may be chat the women of our countrj have no voice in 
the matter <>t electing a President, though their voices may not be 
directly brought into the sessions oi Congress, it is nevertheless a fact 
that the inspiring influences which govern this great land <it the free 
come from the fair ones of the country. 

On leaving Hampton Road- official orders and thoughts oi official 
business surrendered themselves to the thoughts nt loved ones— mothers, 
wives and sweethearts — left behind, though they might have been fo rg otten in the 
overwhelming duties attending the sailing of the great fleet and preparations tor the 
event awaiting its arrival in Magdalena Bay. Such thoughts again surrendered them- 
selves to the thoughts of the gentler ones as each port was reached in the anticipation 
of there finding messages from loved ones, messages that would make the battles of 
life seem easier and the rough ways smoother. 

It was so in Rio de Janeiro when the time drew near for the departure of the 

fleet. The sixteen ships were to have sailed on the J 1st, but the sailing was postponed 
one day in order that the fleet might receive the mail from home, which had left 
New ^ nrk on the ^th of January. It was not official mail which held the fleet in 

the harbor, for none was expected, but it was letters from the homes oi the fifteen 
thousand men whose hearts were gladdened on the day that the mail arrived. Nru- 
that the little ones were well at home was oi tar more value to those men than the 

doing ngress, then in session. Even the Paj Mill was a matter oi minor 

importance. 

President lYnna. after having received the official Call of Admiral Thomas. 
gracefully retired from the scenes oi the celebration during its staj at Rio de Janeiro 
until the time came tor the departure oi the fleet. At 1 :30 on the afternoon 
January _'_'d a little side wheeled yacht -one which had been a model in the days when 
the court ot Portugal was located at Rio- was seen to have left the quay, thing the 
flag of the President ot Brazil and steaming toward the fleet. His tour ot the 
harbor was tor a twofold purpose — ot reviewing his own fleet as well as the fleet 
of his quests in the harbor. The First Marine Band ot Brazil was on the deck ot 
the little side-wheeler, and as it churned its w n\ down the line, flanked by the great 
white ships, the band played the national air ot the I nited States, while the ships 
manned the rail ami returned from each quarterdeck the notes ot the Brazilian 
national anthem. 

The Brazilian men-of-war in the bay cast of! the buoys to which they - 
moored and steamed in parade toward the mouth (i the harbor, circling at the lower 
end of the American anchorage and executing, as it were, a grand march back t" 
the head of the columns. At A o'clock the last ship had passed the review, when 
the signal "Up anchor" fluttered to windward from the yardarm of the after br 
of the Flagship Connecticut, and the white squadron was so<>n under way. A flood 
tide had swung the slips s () :1 < to head them to sea. s () that in leaving the harbor the 
order in which the fleet arrived was reversed. The two sister ships. Kentucky and 



60 WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 

Kearsarge, led the way, followed by the twins Alabama and Illinois, these four ships 
comprising the fourth division, under the command of Admiral Sperry. 

During the stay of the fleet in Rio de Janeiro the weather had been all that 
could possibly have been expected. Unspotted by a single cloud, the blue canopy 
of heaven had permitted undisputed the right of the sun to smile upon the scenes 
of the week ; but it seemed ^hat no sooner had the anchors been lifted from the 
bottom of the harbor when, like a thunderbolt from a clear sky, a grtat black cloud 
spread over the harbor like a huge awning made fast to the pinnacles of the spear-like 
peaks which surround it. Boreas seemed desirous of showing that he had a hand 
in administering his share of climate to Rio de Janeiro. The waves soon rose in the 
harbor until the small craft which had come to bid ban voyage to the fleet were 
compelled to withdraw to the shore. It appeared a great gale to the launches and 
small boats, and even to the President's yacht the waves caused considerable annoyance, 
but to the great ships of the fleet as they steamed into the teeth of the blow it seemed 
but a refreshing breeze, the courtesy of the god of winds to lower the temperature 
that pervaded the ships, as down in the engine rooms firemen and coal passers stood 
with bared breasts beneath the ventilators and welcomed the cooling draught which 
was carried to the fire rooms. With the storm came torrents of rain, pouring from 
the black clouds above as though the bottom of a great suspended reservoir had been 
perforated. Although steaming at intervals of less than eight hundred yards, the 
rain fell in such torrents as to obscure the sight of one ship from another, while the 
wind and sea continued to rise. 

The little Brazilian yacht held stiffly in the teeth of the gale until the mouth 
of the harbor was reached. When abreast Fort Villagenon every ship fired a partin;: 
salute as the trim side-wheeler lay off to allow the fleet to pass. The firing of this 
salute was the last token of respect to the government and to the people of Brazil, 
whose courteous hospitality will never be forgotten by the fifteen thousand men whose 
honor it was to fraternize for a time with this great and growing sister republic. 
The last sight of land had passed from view during the mid-watch, and the following 
morning the fleet was steaming toward the Strait of Magellan, surrounded by a 
great circle of unobstructed horizon. The pleasures accompanying the visit to Rio de 
Janeiro remained with all in memory only, as preparation w T as religiously continued 
for the one great event toward which the fleet was steaming in Magdalena Bay, the 
event of target practice, the harvest of the year's preparation at which every man 
works with the greatest zeal. 

Death again visited the fleet on the 23d, when F. A. Tew, oiler on the Maine, 
died of peritonitis, and on the follow-ing morning the solemn ceremonies of committing 
his body to the deep were performed, while all ships hove to with flags at half-mast. 

On Sunday the fleet was steaming about eight hundred miles off the coast of 
Uruguay, opposite the mouth of Rio de la Plata. It w^as known that the Argentine 
Republic was to have sent a squadron to receive the fleet in this latitude, and shortly 
before noon Admiral Evans dispatched the following wireless message: 

"To Rear Admiral Oliva: 

"Fleet eight o'clock latitude 35 degrees 35 minutes S., longitude 52 degrees 40 
minutes W., steaming south 31 degrees W., magnetic, speed ten knots. Evans." 

Two hours later the wireless operators in the fleet received the following in reply: 
"To Rear Admiral Evans: 

''The Commander of the San Martin Division of the Argentine Navy salutes

Rear Admiral Evans, hi- officers and men, and transmits to him the position ot the 
Argentine Division, ordered t<> meet him, a- In dead reckoning 36 degrees 56 minutes 
>., longitude 53 degrees 41 minutes W. Hipoltta Oliva." 

Other messages were exchanged between the two Admirals which showed the 
ships drawing steadily nearer to each other. About nine in the evening streaming 
lights of tour -hips were reported of! the starboard quarter, and during the night 
they drew nearer, until by the light of da] thej were recognized as four men-ot-wai.

The cruise of the fleet had brought it through a complete change of four seasons. 
Leaving Hampton Roads in the winter, the fleet steamed through spring in the course 
of a few days. Spending a hurried summer in Trinidad and at Rio, they were now 
rapidly changing their season to autumn as they steamed into the southern latitudes. 
The mercury continued to drop, and the uniforms which had been white from the 
time the fleet had crossed Caocer were, on the 28th of January, neatly folded and 
stowed in the bottom of clothes bags as blue was again brought to tfie top. Foggy 
weather was again encountered on the 29th off the Patagonian coast, and during the 
day the position of ships was known to each other only by the sounding of their call 
letters on the whistles. 

At 8:30 on the morning of the last day of January Cape Virgin was sighted 
off the starboard bow. Solitary and weather-beaten stands the lighthouse on the 
point of this cape — a low flat rock, void of the least vestige of shrubbery, receding

from the mainland to a slight elevation. It is seldom that this point of land is not 
enveloped in mist or fog, and the condition of the rocks shows the violence of gales 
and the fury of the sea. It was at this point that the microphones conveyed to the 
ever-listening ears of the wireless operators the following message : 

"Welcome American squadron distinguished." 

The message was not signed, but well was it known to have come from the 
Chilian wireless station, for the fleet was then cruising in Chilian waters. Within 
an hour from the time that Cape Virgin was sighted land was seen on the port bow, 
and before noon the fleet was well within the mouth of the Strait of Magellan. 
Continuing on its way until four o'clock in the afternoon, the fleet dropped anchor in 
Possession Bay to await the dawn of the following morning and the change of tide. 

Having listened to the tales of the old-timers, those recently having survived 
the initiation of the Ancient Order of the Deep stood on the forecastle as the fleet

WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 



The entire population of Punta Arenas, doubled at the time of the arrival of 
the fleet by people in outlying vicinities, numbered far less than the population of the 
visiting fleet, and it was unquestionably a fact that the entire population had gath- 
ered along the waterfront and on the pier to watch the arrival of the fleet and to 
extend a hearty welcome to their newly arrived guests on that first day of February, 
1908, when at 1:15 in the afternoon the anchors of the sixteen big battleships 
dropped into the blue waters to a depth of thirty fathoms. The hills echoed with salute-; 
which were exchanged between the Chilian ship Chacabuco, the British cruiser Sappho 
and the American Flagship Connecticut. 

The next day was Sunday and the ships not engaged in coaling sent large liberty 
parties ashore. There was little, however, for them to do except stretch their legs. 
for the city, outside of its one main thoroughfare leading to its one park, offered little 
of interest to the men who had but recently enjoyed such a varied program of enter- 
tainment and scenes. None the less cordial, however, were the people of Punta

Arenas in their reception of the fleet, even though they lacked the facilities of the 
capital. They could extend the same hearty welcome that would have been accorded 
the fleet had it stopped in Valparaiso, for they were Chilians, and in their welcome 
to the ships they were but reflecting the sentiment of the Chilian government. 

To those who had traveled much in Spanish settlements and colonies, Punta 
Arenas seemed a strange contradiction to all they had seen before. It was hard to 
picture a Spanish settlement or a Spanish speaking people in a latitude where gar- 
ments other than the commesita arc necessary to keep out the cold. The Spanish 
language, outside of Spain, immediately associates itself with the tropics. Here in 
this southernmost city in the world the people are possessed of the customs of 
the tropics without the climate of the tropics to sustain them. The two conditions 
seem strangely contrasted. Were it not for the fact that pea-coats were uniform. 
Punta Arenas would bear the appearance of a pineapple country, instead of a glacier-

bound country exporting furs. Punta Arenas is nothing short of a tropical city in 
an antarctic setting. 

It would not have required a very thorough investigation to learn the truth 
of the statement that men from every navy in the world may be found at Punta 
Arenas, men who have deserted their ships for various reasons and cast their lots 
with others of their class, and having become accustomed to the peculiar climate 
and customs of the people, prefer to remain there and paf rent than to move. Besides, 
it is no small affair to move from Punta Arenas to New York, Paris, London, or 
any other part of the world where things really happen. The long arm of the law 
seldom reaches clear down below the fifty-third parallel, and to those who are refu- 
gees, whatever may have been their past, there comes peace of mind in Punta Arenas, 
preferred to the everlasting watchfulness and anxiety in little old New York. Why 
speculate on the past history of the strangers one meets in Punta Arenas, and why 





PUNTA ARENAS: ATLANTIC FLEET IN THE HARBOR. 



attempt to disclose their past identity? Let us keep our conjecturing to ourselves and 
ask no questions. Though some may have stepped from the paths of right, though 
they may have side-stepped justice, they are not all bad. 

Punta Arenas is as near an approach to a galvanized city as will be found any- 
where on earth. The buildings are almost entirely constructed of galvanized iron, 
though an occasional house may be built of wood the roofs without exception are 
made of this corrugated material. Therefore, a bird's-eye view of the place is dis- 
tinctly metallic. The old-timer had canvassed the ships thoroughly with his stories 
of the great value of furs to be found in Punta Arenas. It was, therefore, the first 
errand of the liberty parties to seek the fur stores. There was no attempt, probably, 
on the part of the tradespeople of Punta Arenas to be humorous, but it did seem 
exceedingly humorous to Jack, as he landed at the dock and there saw prominently 
displayed a sign, evidently erected by the chamber of commerce, which read in 



66 WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 

English: "Special Prices FOR the Fleet." That settled it for the men, for they 
had been confronted both at Trinidad and at Rio with prices which had been made 
especially for the fleet. It is the same lemon handed to the American bluejacket in 
all parts of the world, but it seemed that the people of Punta Arenas were quite 
generous in placing him on his guard immediately he landed. When it came to bar- 
gaining for furs in the several stores, it was discovered that a little judicious eloquence 
would bring the price of a jfuanaco from twenty-two dollars down to, sixteen dollars. 
This almost made it positive that their prices were special for the fleet. 

To the humorist probably the most vivid impression at Punta Arenas was left 
by furs, fleas, children, and whiskers — the furs in the stores, children in the streets, 
whiskers on all of the men, and fleas everywhere. 

At the time of the arrival of the fleet summer was just on the decline and prep- 
arations were being made for the long, cold winter. The sheep were being brought 
from the mountains where they had followed the snow line as the summer verdure 
had crept up the mountain sides, and the old prospector and miner was preparing to 
return to his winter quarters. 

It is so seldom that real Americans visit that unfrequented route of travel that 
the few people there who claimed the protection of the American flag were most heart- 
ily glad to see the great white ships and to watch them as they unfurled the Stars 
and Stripes each morning at eight o'clock during their stay. The days were long and 
the flag waved in the oblique rays of the sun long after the people at home had gone to 
bed. If the tales of the miners and prospectors be true, the time will soon' be when 
stampedes will be inaugurated to the Strait of Magellan gold fields, and Alaska will 
be forgotten as the great gold-bearing frontier of the world. One old American, 
grizzled and gray from years of exposure, verified his claims as to the wealth of the 
mountains about Punta Arenas by dividing the contents of a heavy poke among a 
crowd of sailors, who listened to his tales with the remark: "Punta Arenas for me 
when my cruise is up!" Trappers find profitable occupation in this section of the 
country, and stored in their possession at the time of the arrival of the fleet were thou- 
sands of valuable furs which they were holding, waiting for an opportunity to ship 
them. The arrival of the fleet was opportune for the trappers and traders in skins, for 
among the men of the fleet they found ready purchasers, and other articles in the 
way of curios with which the few shop-tenders were supplied were sold within an 
hour of the landing of the first liberty parties. 

The fleet remained for six days at Punta Arenas, but these were busy days, 
divided between coaling the ship and swinging ship. On the evening of the 7th at 
eleven o'clock the entire fleet, including the torpedo flotilla, which had arrived on the 
afternoon of the 4th, weighed anchor and proceeded on the voyage.

Through the Strait of Magellan. The Review at Valparaiso: 

Fleet Visits Peru. 



The 




HE sailing of the fleet from Punta Arenas was delayed for two days. 
As the hours crept on after the original time for departure had passed 
stories were circulated through the fleet that they were waiting for the 
mythical and mysterious "Captain Green," who was coming from 
somewhere, probably in an airship, to pilot the fleet through the Strait 
of Magellan. Nobody in the fleet knew who "Captain Green" was 
until they had received the mail in Rio de Janeiro and read in the 
various service papers bits of caustic protest against the humiliation about to be 
inflicted on the service by placing the pilotage of the fleet in the hands of this "rank 
outsider." The phantom pilot did not appear in Rio de Janeiro according to schedule, 
of which the newspapers knew more than the Department, so a lookout had been 
Kept for the "Flying Dutchman," which might have had "Captain Green" aboard. 
No one in the fleet seemed to worry, even at Punta Arenas, when "Captain Green" 
did not put in an appearance, and navigators busied themselves with their charts, 
without giving the matter further than a commonplace thought. 

It was at eleven o'clock on the evening of February 7th that the fleet got under 
way, and in the pale twilight of that long antarctic day the galvanized city faded from 
view before the intervening walls of the crooked strait were reached. It was prac- 
tically daylight all the time and the sun, rising the following morning at four o'clock, 
saw the fleet steaming at intervals of four hundred yards, with eight hundred yards 
between each division, extending in a column little short of five miles between the 
Connecticut at the head and the Panther in the rear. To thousands of people such 
a sight would have been an inspiring one, but to the fifteen thousand men there who 
saw it it seemed nothing more than a commonplace event, just sixteen ships ploughing 
along through the Strait of Magellan. The scenery along the strait is more than 
grand, it is stupendous. Glaciers can be seen extending back from the water's edge 
for miles, and the pinnacles of rugged rock rear their heads clear beyond the clouds. 
Tierra del Fuego on the south offers a bleak and uninviting shore ; but what a scene 
it was to those fifteen thousand men, steaming along on those sixteen great, comfort- 
able ships, supplied with the luxuries of home, with refrigerators stored with fresh 
meat and vegetables, and two big supply ships following in the rear to replenish 
them when they became empty. 

How changed is the scene of today when compared with that of 1520 when 
Magellan, in his poorly equipped sailing vessel, coping alone with a crew of mutinous 
men, hungry and almost without food, fought his way through these same waters, 
seeking the passage which he subsequently followed. Little beauty could be seen 
by those mariners in the snow-capped peaks, in the rugged cliffs of the granite moun- 
tain, or in the glacier-filled ravines. 

No less than majestic was the passage of this great white fleet through this 
solitary portion of the world, where not a soul waited on the hill-tops to greet it as 
it passed. Tierra del Fuego, the land of fire, shone resplendent in the morning and 
evening sun as the snow-capped peaks seemed to burst into flame when crimsoned 



68

FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC. 69 

by the shining rays. Never again, probably, will such an excursion be brought 
through the Strait of Magellan, and it is certain that never before had this lonely 
passage seen such a pageant. 

True, there were dangers on every hand from rocks and shoals, but the naviga- 
tors of the fleet looked upon the task of bringing their charges safely through the 
waters in a very commonplace light, even though at t^pes the fog fell thick, hiding 
both shores. Then the navigators had the worst hours of the passage, but it did not 
disturb their peace of mind, nor would it have done so had the string of battleships 
been twenty miles instead of but five miles in length. The only possible chance of 
accident, however, came from a breakdown of the machinery. But sixteen powerful 
ships are not going to steam from Hampton Roads without mishap, and then break 
down at the only critical moment in the voyage, in spite of the fact that such is the 
description in story books. 

Cape Pilar was cleared, and by eight-thirty in the evening the rolling motion 
of the ships told plainly that the strait had been passed and again the fleet was on 
the bosom of the ocean, soon to change its course to the northward and steam into 
summer. Nothing of great importance occurred during the next few days, other 
than that Morris-tube drill and "ping pong" became more popular, and gun drill 
exercises became more strenuous in anticipation of the target practice which awaited 
the fleet on its arrival at Magdalena. 

On the afternoon of the 13th the fleet passed the cruiser Chicago on its way 
to New York from San Francisco, after having been in Pacific waters for three years. 
It did not take the Chicago long to advise the steam fleet that she was homeward 
bound, for her long pennant was broken from the main and kept flying in the breeze 
from the time she hove in sight until she was separated from the fleet beyond the 
searching gaze of telescopes. At the time the Chicago cruiser was met the Chilian 
cruiser Chacabuco was accompanying the fleet, and the cruiser saluted both Admiral 
Evans and the Chilian admiral. 

Chili had wanted the fleet to call at Valparaiso. The Chilian people desired 
to extend to the fleet the welcome of the capital to show that the animus of the 
past had been buried and that now the two nations lived in harmony and good 
fellowship, and were willing and glad to extend the hand of welcome in their land 
to Admiral Evans today, though he was the man who but a few years ago landed on 
the same shore, then threatening and in a warlike attitude. But though the people 
of Chili wanted the fleet to stop at Valparaiso, the schedule was such as to make it 
impossible. Admiral Evans, however, promised by wireless to show the great fleet 
to the people of Valparaiso, naming the hour at which he would arrive. On the 
morning of February 14th the fleet had proceeded to a position so advanced that to 
have continued the same speed would have brought it into Valparaiso ahead of sched- 
ule time, thus probably disappointing many who would not have arrived in the capital 
until the hour previously designated. Engines were then slowed down in order that 
the schedule as announced might be carried out. 

All Valparaiso, and thousands of people from other cities in Chili, as well as 
many of the people from the little villages of the Andes, had thronged to points of 
vantage to witness the passage of the fleet. President Montt and his cabinet came 
out from shore on the training ship General Baquedano to greet the battleships, 
and almost the entire Chilian navy exchanged salutes with them as they swung around 
Caraumilla Point and into the bay of Valparaiso in column, headed by the Chilian

71 



Chacabuco and five Chilian torpedo boat destroyers. The American column, headed 
by the Connecticut, came sharp around Caraumilla Point shortly after one o'clock in 
the afternoon of February 14th, steaming into view of the thousands who had 
climbed to observation points as early as six o'clock in the morning in order to get 
a good view of the unprecedented spectacle. The president and his party took a 
position well out in the harbor, and the fleet swung in at a speed of four knots, firing 
the presidential salute as they passed into view, with all rails manned. 

The city of Valparaiso presented a beautiful picture to the fleet as it steamed 
through the harbor. The red clay of the hills was covered with the multitudes and 
the gay dresses seemed to carpet the hillsides which rose tier on tier behind the city. 
A holiday had been officially declared in Valparaiso and the city was decorated in 
red, white and blue, the colors of both Chili arid the United States. Shouts of 
enthusiasm were wafted over the harbor from the thousands of people gathered on 




THE CHILIAN TRAINING SHIP GENERAL BAQUEDANO.

the waterfront and on the hill-sides, but this was drowned by the noise of saluting 
guns as the Chilian fleet was broken at the main on all of the American ships. The 
bay was full of small craft and excursion boats crowded with people who had come 
for a closer view of the fleet as it passed. The General Baquedano lifted anchor 
and escorted the fleet well out of the bay on its northward course. 

As the fleet entered the harbor on the face of a prominent hill a battalion of 
Chilian sailors, in white uniform and contrasted against the green, had arranged 
themselves in the form of great letters, spelling "Welcome," and as the fleet 
was leaving the harbor they rearranged themselves, forming the word "Farewell." 
It was a touching scene to Admiral Evans, as he compared the difference in his recep- 
tion now and that which was accorded him but a few years ago, when he steamed into 

the harbor cleared for action, threatening to "blow to the first boat that scraped 

the paint off his boom." It was a full hour from the time the Connecticut rounded

Caraumilla until the last vessel had passed the president's ship and turned to the 
open sea. It was a review such as had never before been seen in Valparaiso, and one 
that will be remembered long by the people who had come for miles to see it. The 
ships in the harbor and the buildings of the city were dressed for the occasion. The 
roofs of the Boha Commercial, with its two huge towers, the custom house, and a 
large warehouse and other buddings along the circular waterfront were crowded with 
spectators during the entire scene, and the enthusiasm of the Chilians was almost 
boundless. During the passing of the fleet in and out of the harbor over twelve 
hundred shots were fired. 

On the morning of the 15th land was sighted, which aroused unusual interest 
in thousands aboard, especially the younger ones, whose memories still retained the 
vivid stories told in the narrative of Defoe of the adventures of Robinson Crusoe, 
for the land sighted was Juan Fernandez, the setting for the story which has delighted 
so many generations of children. 




LANDING LIBERTY PARTIES AT CALLAO, PERI' 



Anticipating the arrival of the United States Atlantic Fleet, the Peruvians had 
arranged a reception for the officers and men during their stay at Callao, and the 
program of the celebration was transmitted to Admiral Evans by wireless from the 
Peruvian cruiser Pugnersifcr. The program was arranged as follows, and after the 
arrival of the fleet it was carried into effect in accordance with the arranged schedule: 

February 21— Visit of the Commander-in-Chief or his representatives to Minister 
of Foreign Affairs and the President of Peru. 

February 22 — Banquet by the President of Peru to the Commander-in-Chief, 
flag officers and two hundred officers of the fleet. 

February 23 — Grand ball at Callao. 

February 24 — Bull-fight for six hundred officers and three thousand men of the 
fleet by the Peruvian government. 

February 25 — Garden party by the United States Minister. 



FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC. 



73 



February 26 — Garden party at Exposition Grounds by the municipality. 

February 27 — Return of official dinner by the Commander-in-Chief. 

This message was received by Admiral Evans and transmitted to the fleet two 
days before the fleet arrived in Callao, allowing much time for anticipation. 

On the afternoon of the 19th of February the Peruvian cruiser Bolognesi joined 
the fleet for the purpose of escorting the ships to the hgrbor of Callao. It was quite 
misty on the Allowing morning, yet in the early hours the high, rocky mountains 
were sighted, marking the outlines of the harbor of Callao. Passing the jutting rocks 
which border the shore, the fleet steamed in column, following the Peruvian cruiser, 
but at the signal from the flagship the formation was changed as though the ships, 
accustomed to entering ports of this sort, knew just what to do and but awaited the 
time to do it. With the firing of the national salute with the Peruvian ensign on 
the main, the ships came to anchor. 




ADMIRAL EVANS' GASOLINE BARGE AT CALLAO. 



Coal ship, that was the first thing to think of, and even if the sun did shine in 
its pitch-frying glory nobody seemed to care ; in fact, coaling looked about as good 
.as liberty in Callao. 

The cruise of the fleet offered a grand opportunity for the study of various 
styles of entertainment in South America. They all have their way. But, what's 
the use? One place is the same as the other from one point of view when a fellow 
has his destination staring him in the face — one great round of pleasure, the kind he 
likes, where he can ask for what he wants and get what he asks for. 

The Peruvians had sent a representative to Rio de Janeiro to see how the 
American sailors acted and to learn what form of entertainment would please them 
best. Smothered with attention, drowned in hospitality, or swamped in a sea of 
kindness probably describes the condition of the people of the fleet during their stay 
in Peruvian waters. Hospitality? It was everywhere, and courtesy and attention 
pervaded the atmosphere; but — Well, just but.

Detailed to attend a ball where pretty senoritas danced to soft music and the 
tropic breezes brought quieting thoughts and sweet perfume; yet, just think of it, 
there were some whose bumps of appreciation were so poorly developed that they 
actually kicked, and that wasn't fair. 

The people of Peru did everything in their power to make the visit of the fleet 
a pleasant one both for offices and men. Their aim was to outdo the people of 
Brazil. The spirit was willing, but the flesh was weak. *• 

Callao presents a scene which excites sympathy from the visitor. It has been 
the scene of horror upon horror since the days of Pizarro — -war, battle, strife, famine 
and destruction by earthquake. Today the city seems to stand only through sufferance. 
Gathered in the harbor will be seen at all times of the year ships flying the flags of 
all nations, rotting, many of them, while "on the beach" will be found their crews, 
men picked up in all parts of the world and there stranded. There was manv a man

in Callao "on the beach" at the time of the arrival of the fleet who looked at the 
big ships as they dropped their anchors in the harbor with the prospect in sight of 
getting something to eat when the men came ashore. Some were bums and some 
of them were worthy, but between them the bluejacket does not discriminate. His 
heart is too big to study the hair-splitting points in human nature, and he allows no 
man to go hungry. 

Quitting Callao after a very short inspection, the liberty parties availed them- 
selves of the two means of transportation offered to Lima, and there they found 
things a bit more in keeping with the ways of civilization and sanitation, though there 
are yet many improvements to be made. The antiquity of some of the buildings 
impresses the antiquarian. Frequently may be seen the old structure of three cen- 
turies ago standing beside the building of today. North of the Plaza Mayor, in the 
center of the city, stands the old cathedral built in the days of Pizarro, while adjoining

it are the government buildings. This old cathedral has silently witnessed the wars, 
riots and desecrations of over three centuries, while the bullet-scarred walls and doors 
as silently tell of the scenes it has survived. Peru was then the great El Dorado. 
Pizarro robbed from the Incas to adorn the wonderful cathedral, and later the spoilers 
were robbed during the Chilian invasion, and millions in gold and silver were carried 
from the church. In a chapel, an institution of the^cathedral, rest the remains of 
the cruel and # ambitious Pizarro, the man who founded Lima. The body rests in 
a glass and marble casket, open to the gaze of the public. 

Naturally Peru is rich, but politically it is poor. Its gold and its silver have 
for the last three c&nturies gone to other parts of the world, gone to enrich others. 
Much of the individual incomes of the people of Peru is spent in the support of the 
church. Upon the population of Lima, a population of one hundred and fifty thou- 
sand, depends the support of one hundred and twenty-six Roman Catholic churches.

This cathedral was founded by Pizarro in 1535. destroyed by earthquake in 1746 and rebuilt 

on its old foundation. 



Bull-fighting is the national game, sport, or whatever one may care to call the 
bloody circus that a bull-fight is. It was into a great bull-fight that the people of 
Lima threw all the force of their entertainment in honor of the visiting fleet. Three 
thousand men of the fleet were met at the landing in Callao on the 24th of February 
by an escort of six bands of music, and conducted to the railway depot, where six 
trains were waiting to take the men, the guests of the Peruvian Government, to 
Lima. There were many to whom the term bull-fight did not appeal ; these sought 
recreation elsewhere. Those who did not care to follow the band wagon sought 
other means of transportation to the scene of the bull-fight. There was no possibility 
of one being lost, for everybody was traveling in the same direction, and to reach 
the bull-fight one had only to throw one's self into the human tide which drifted 
but the one way. This was a great event, at which the President of Peru was the 
host and the people of the United States fleet were the guests. The guests arrived

WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 



first, and undoubtedly the arena was never before looked upon by a larger audience ; 
yet, when the bloody fiesta ended, it was attended by the smallest gallery before which 
a toreador ever bowed in Lima. 

When all was ready for the start the President entered his box accompanied 
by all the pomp attending the appearance of the Mikado. As he entered three cheers 
were given by the American sailors, and with that ended the outward display of 
enthusiasm from the quarter or the amphitheater occupied by the navy.* 

Strange it is why we should remember so vividly the horrible. Although the 
entire stay of the fleet was marked by gay receptions, balls and dinners, the thoughts 
of the bull-fight seem to have drowned the memories of the other things; and it was 
the bull-fight that characterized the celebrations attending the visit of the fleet to Peru. 

When all were waiting the toreadors entered the ring, acknowledging the applause 
of the audience first by a bow to the President and then to the right and the left. 



H

Then came a team of four horses that were attached to a two-wheeled truck. These 
were driven several times around the arena. 

"What kind of a chariot race is that?" inquired the sailors. 

"That is the rig they have for taking the bull out of the arena as soon as he 
is killed," they were informed. 

"Then this is a cut and dried job, where the poor bull plays second fiddle. The 
bull is up against it from the start. This is all a one-sided affair. It isn't a square 
game." These were a few of the remarks provoked from the sailors when the one 
finale of the game was paraded before the game started ; and from that moment the 
benches in the sailors' quarters offered seats for others. 

From the Peruvian point of view it was a great fight or rather series of fights, 
for six bulls had been provided, one to be killed for each of the four visiting United 
States admirals, one for the officers of the fleet, and one for the enlisted men. The 
sentiment attending the killing of the six bulls did not appeal strongly to those in 
whose honor thev were sacrificed.

The first bull was released. Coming from a darkened pen, for a moment he 
seemed dazed by the light and the scene with which he was confronted. It was a 
new game for him, but an old one to his opponents. Instinct is all he had to guide 
him, and instinct that every moment led him into danger and torture at the hands 
of the toreadors. 

Bull's blood is not enough to satisfy the thirst for gore, so several superannuated 
horses are ridden in front of the bulls to be disemboweled for the edification of the 
audience by the savage horn thrusts of the infuriated beasts. The toreadors attracted 
the attention of the maddened animal by the waving of the ever-hated red, toward 
which with lowered head the bull charged, only to find that as he went to strike his 
foe the banderillero had side-stepped and thrust the piercing banderillas into the 
bull's neck, increasing his pain and anger. At one time a bull rushed at the ban- 
derillero. who thrust two long banderillas deep into the animal's neck. To the

end of one of these spears was attached an American flag and from the other floated 
the Peruvian ensign. This brought cheers from the Peruvian side of the house, but 
silence from the sailors, who could see no occasion for patriotic enthusiasm. Wounded, 
bleeding, suffering, exhausted, the poor bull seemed to plead with the matador to 
end it all, for his fate was sealed and the sooner it was over the better. A bugle 
called the matador into the ring, when he stepped in front of the President and 
asked permission to kill the bull. Permission granted, the matador stepped into 
the middle of the arena. The animal quivered, and his flanks heaved from labored 
breathing. Still aroused by the flaunting red cloak, the bull made one more feeble 
rush for the matador; but this he avoided, and finally, reaching over the horns of 
the bull, as his head was lowered, the matador drove his sword to the hilt between 
animal's shoulders, reaching the heart. As the long weapon was withdrawn it 
was followed by a stream of blood, the sight of which sent the crowd into hysterics

of shouting: "Bravo, matador, bravo, bravo!" The several bands played a variety 
of music at the same time; people shouted, throwing their hats and money into the 
arena before the feet of the toreadors, banderilleros and the matador. The four- 
horse team galloped into the ring and dragged the "vanquished" bull from the arena. 
Thus the six bulls were killed. 

The national sport of Peru did not suit the tastes of the American bluejackets, 
and even though they were guests of the nation they did not consider that courtesy 
'demanded that they remain to see the finish of a circus so bloody and disgusting. So, 
silently, one by one and in bunches, they left the scene without word of apology or 
excuse to the President. 

"There's nothing square about that game. The poor bull comes into that ring 
to die, so what the is the use of watching it?" These were the words of many. 

"I'm glad the bull got one of them," was the remark of more than one man a: 
the liberty parties returned to the ships. 




A BUNCH OP LIMA LLAMAS. 

One feature of the stay that appealed mostly to those who cared to see things 
was the excursion to Little Hell Bridge, a distance of eighty miles from Callao by 
rail at an elevation of eleven thousand feet. The construction of this road has been 
a wonderful piece of engineering. As the train labored around the curves, ever 
climbing higher and higher, many of the excursionists became afflicted with mountain 
sickness, and their ears began to ring with peculiar sounds as the lighter atmosphere 
was reached. The scenery was grand, stupendous, but it was hardly what an artist 
would call beautiful. The great crags around, over and through which the train 
passed were void of trees, as though nature in the original construction of things had 
forgotten to place the finishing touches to the scene. Looking up from an elevation 
of eleven thousand feet, the great Andes Mountains still towered to the heavens, and, 
though in the tropics, the frost-laden breeze seemed to fall from the heights above. 
The natives seemed to take pride in telling the sailors that the great feat of engineering 
in the construction of the railroad was accomplished by American engineers. 



80 WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 

The electric cars which run from Callao to Lima are American built, and to 
many of the men from the fleet this bit of America seemed good to them. One man 
spent his entire liberty riding in the cars, because he said that it reminded him so 
much of home. 

The money of Peru is "Mex," and one gets a lot of it for an American ten- 
dollar gold piece, so much of it, in fact, that the first desire is to get rid of it. This 
probably accounted for the rrfany things that the liberty parties brought back with 
them to the ships. Lima was pronounced by all an excellent place to buy souvenirs,, 
and a great variety of things was purchased for those at home. The stock in Panama 
hats was completely exhausted during the stay of the fleet; the jewelers were busy 
selling their odd jewelry, while the nativ parti-colored scarfs and hand-drawn needle- 
work found ready purchasers among the men of the fleet. 

On the 19th the Peruvian cruiser, Colonel Bolognesi, met the fleet at sea and 
escorted it into Callao, Peru, where it arrived on the following day, sixty-five days 
from Hampton Roads. 

While the fleet was in Callao the American minister to Ecuador, who was 
then in Peruvian waters, reported to Admiral Evans that the Norwegian bark 
Alexandra had been wrecked on the west coast of Indefatigable Island on the 20th 
of May, 1907. The captain and eight of the crew survived on the island until 
October 28th of the same year, subsisting on turtles. Late in October the captain 
decided to move to a more southerly point, where he thought the chance of being 
picked up by a passing vessel was better. There was an American, Fred Jeffs by 
name, who had shipped on the Alexandra at Newcastle, Australia. At the time the 
captain decided to move Jeffs was ill with pleurisy and refused to take the chance 
accompanying a long journey, believing the possibility of rescue to be as good in one 
place as another. The judgment of the captain proved the better, he and his crew 
being picked up shortly after at a place called Puerto Aquado. The captain of the 
rescuing ship declined to go for Jeffs, claiming that the approach to the island was 
dangerous, and he did not care to risk the lives of his men or endanger his ship. 

The castaways were landed at Gua}'aquil, Ecuador, where they informed the 
authorities of Jeffs' plight. Jeffs being an American, they advised the American min- 
ister, who in turn informed Admiral Evans. On the 1st of March Admiral Evans 
dispatched the Yankton to the Galapagos Islands. Indefatigable Island was located, 
and the crew of the Yankton, under Lieutenant Gherardi, made a thorough search, 
camping ashore and penetrating the interior of every place that human life seemed 
possible. Guns were fired at day and rockets by night, while searchlights were kept 
continually at play. During their search they found an old, rusty razor with the 
name Jeffs on the handle, but the owner could not be found. It was reported that 
a ship had visited the island recently, and that Jeffs had probably been rescued, 
although nothing had been heard of him since his comrades left him last October. 
The Yankton left the guides on Chatal Island on the 7th and started for Magdalena 
Bav. 



FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC. 




From Callao, Peru, to Magdalena Bay. 

EN days in Callao offered ample opportunity for "doing" the capital 
of Peru and its seaport metropolis, even after deducting the time spent 
in coaling ship. The desire to get to work at target practice had 
seemed to absorb all hands, and there was no mourning when 
it was announced that the fleet would sail on tomorrow morning. 

At 9:30 on the morning of February 27 a twenty-one-gun salute 
was fired as the President of Peru, with his Cabinet, stood out into 
the bay on a small yacht on his way to the cruiser Almirante Grau, which immedi- 
ately got under way to escort the American fleet from the harbor. It was 10:10 
when the column of battleships was under way, following in the wake of the Grau, 
while beside them steamed all sorts of launches and small boats loaded with the 
people of Callao and Lima to bid farewell to the men who for the past ten days had 
been their guests. At the entrance of the harbor the Grau stood off the course and 
the fleet steamed by in review; the rails of each ship were manned as it passed, and 
a parting salute of twenty-one guns was fired as the fleet proceeded to sea. 

As the column was getting under way the Georgia hoisted the signal "Man 
overboard." Lifeboats were lowered as the Georgia left the column. In seven 
minutes from the time the alarm was given the man was recovered and the battleship 
again under way. Taking a position in the rear of the column, the Georgia thus 
left the harbor, taking her original position as soon as the column reached the open sea. 

The fear of being "detailed" to represent the United States of America at a 
Peruvian dress ball had now passed. The necessity of "shirking" the opportunity 
to drink to the health of presidents, ambassadors, ministers and admirals at honorary 
banquets was a thing of the past. The ward-room and the steerage breathed in a 
freer atmosphere as they laid away their full dress and dinner jackets and as substitutes 
broke out their dungarees. 

"Now for business; that's what we've come for." This was the watchword 
of all hands, as the "ping-pong" developed into a veritable Fourth of July celebration 
ever}- day. 

Conversation was of nothing but target practice, both forward and aft, from 
early in the morning until late at night. Breakfast was served with ping-pong 
conversation ; dinner was garnished with Morris tube argument, and supper came 
to the tables hot with discussion on the subject of bore-sighting. Enthusiasm reigned 
and as the fleet proceeded the ships were each rapidly being put into shape to win 
the trophy. Each gun was ready to take the navy prize and each pointer was on 
deck to make the highest score. The competition among the men of the United 
States Navy at target practice is keener than the competition ever seen at any inter- 
collegiate field day. No team of athletes ever threw such enthusiasm into their 
training as that which accompanies the preparation for target practice. Target 
practice in the United States Navy is the greatest sport in the world. People on the 
outside do not know what it is ; they cannot imagine the magnitude of the event. 
Let us call target practice a sport, and suggest a comparison between the man at a 



82 WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 

pigeon trap shooting clay birds with a twelve-gauge shot-gun with the man on the 
battleship shooting at a target with a gun carrying a projectile weighing twelve 
hundred pounds. The degrees of comparison between the two sports increase in the 
same ratio with the increase of the weight of the powder charge and the projectile. 
The sportsman hres his rifle at a running deer. The navy sport fires his gun while 
the ship is in motion, yet with his big guns he will make more hits than the sportsman 
in the mountains. There is more at stake, too, in the navy's sport, whi<& is a condition 
to be considered. "Only the shots that hit count." 

Every one was so busy that the navigators were the only people who had time 
to notice the bank of fog into which the fleet steamed on the morning of March 4th. 
The heat was oppressive and the fog was warm. The condition of the atmosphere 
was like that of a steam-heated conservatory. This, however, had no effect on the 
regular dig and grind in the preparation for the big event. No one seemed to have 
felt the equator scrape the keel as the ships passed over the line. Even that event 
would have passed unnoticed if the navigator had not made a note of it in the log 
at 1 1 :30 on the morning of March 4th, as the ships were steaming north in longitude 
89° 36" West. 

The American man-of-warsman is not so prone to object to bad conditions as 
he is to rejoice when conditions become better. He did not kick in the southern 
hemisphere as the fleet steamed toward the equator, each day bringing the oppressive 
rise in the mercury, yet when they started "down the other side" he threw congratula- 
tory bouquets at himself and felt better satisfied with himself and his shipmates as 
his hammock at night became less like a bake-oven. 

There was just a thought of what they were doing over there on the canal as 
the fleet steamed in the same latitude with Panama, and a suggestion that the fleet 
return via that route. 

An interesting feature of the voyage from Callao to Magdalena was the contest 
in signaling for the fleet championship. During a contest the two competing ships 
leave the column and steam on parallel courses about three thousand yards apart. 
Midway between the two competing ships and a little in advance steams the 
"hoisting" ship — the ship from which the signals are hoisted for the contestants to 
repeat. The flags are snapped to the halyards of the hoisting ship and hoisted to 
the yard-arm as quickly as possible; then aboard the contesting ships there is a lively, 
interesting scene. One man stands with a glass and sings out to the men on the bridge 
the letters as they are hoisted to view on the hoisting ship. The flags are quickly 
taken from their places and snapped to the halyards. So dexterous do the signal men 
become that in these contests it is frequently the case that before the signal is hoisted 
on the hoisting ship the signal, duplicated, is on its way to the yard-arm aboard the 
competing ships. A series of these contests between the ships of the fleet on the run 
from Callao resulted in putting the Kansas champion of the First Squadron and 
the Kentucky champion of the Second Squadron. On the 10th of March the two 
squadron champions, the Kansas and the Kentucky, were pitted against each other 
in a contest, which resulted in the Kentucky being defeated in a score of twenty-seven 
to eighteen. The next day the Kansas went up against the fleet champion, the Georgia. 
It was an interesting contest and a hard fought one. All hands in the fleet who 
could tear themselves away from ping-pong watched the match, which resulted in 
the Georgia holding her laurels in a score of twenty-seven to twenty-six. 



FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC.

It is thus that the spirit of rivalry and competition, combined with sport, put? 
the navy in its state of- efficiency. Each man in each division tries to excel the other 
in drill ; each division on each ship works to accomplish a little more than the other ; it 
is the aim of each ship in the navy to carry off the honors in all competitions. 
Each unit in the great mass that the navy is is training for excellence ; and with that 
spirit so thoroughly incorporated in the navy it is little to be wondered at that it 
has no desire 1B> play second fiddle to any other navy in the world. 

Death visited the fleet on March 11th, when R. Temple, oiler on the Ohio, was 
taken from his shipmates. The body was consigned to the deep. 

The Mexican coast was sighted on the 11th, the great barren sand hills and 
rocks of which Lower California is made up. Turtles were on every hand, and 
frequently sea-birds were seen resting on the turtles' backs. It is from this region

that the market in San Francisco is supplied with turtles. It is very probable that if 
'hose who are so fond of turtle soup were to see the manner of taking the turtles 
their fondness for that delicacy would begin to wane. The poor reptiles are first 
SDeared through and through with a harpoon and taken into boats and to the shore, 
where, wounded as they are, they are turned on their backs to await the arrival of 
a steamer, which is frequently tv/o weeks in coming. The tenacity a turtle has of 
life allows it thus to suffer several weeks before it finds its way to cafes and relief. 
Early in the morning of the 12th of March the Island of Santa Margarita was 
sighted dead ahead, and by eight o'clock the fleet was steaming between the barren

island walls which bound the entrance to Magdalena Bay, that great place of which 
every man in the fleet had heard so much and which few had seen. 

Steaming in column until well within the bay, the fleet divided into squadrons 
And came to anchor. As the great chains rattled through the hawse-pipes the hills 
echoed with the sound as though the fleet had already begun some sort of miniature 
target practice. 

Magdalena Bay was one of the ports of call on the itinerary of t&e cruise where 
the hills were not lined with anxious, eager multitudes to see the big fleet come in. 
There were no reception committees waiting at the dock with the golden key of the

city. Even the Pacific Fleet had finished target practice and had sailed tor tne 
ilowery fields of California but a few hours before the arrival of the Atlantic Fleet. 
There was a welcome waiting at Magdalena Bay, nevertheless. It was not accom- 
panied with a brass band or with bouquets thrown by senoritas. It was a welcome 
of far more value to the men of that fleet than the flying of flags or the tooting of 
factory whistles. The welcome that awaited in Magdalena Bay was piled on the 
deck of the Buffalo in the form of mail bags arranged in sixteen big heaps. It 
was a case of "first come first served ;" and then was there given another pretty 
example of the navy's competition as each ship tried to get to the Buffalo first with

the launches. Before the ships came to anchor steam was up in the launches; they 
were swung in the cranes and ready to be dropped into the water at the passing ol 
the word, and from every direction the little steamers shot across the water toward 
the Buffalo to get thu tidings from the loved ones at home. Nothing could be 
allowed to interfere with such an important event as tnat of receiving mail. Some 
of the ships received a load that taxed the capacity of the steamers; in fact, they 
were all well leaded. 

There were no official calls to be made upon the arrival of the fleet in Magdalena 
Bay. There were no "banquet and ball details" posted in the ward-rooms, and 
everybody was glad of it. 

Dungaree was uniform when the work began.

What They Do Aboard Battleships. 

HOSE not conversant with navy ways generally believe it is necessary 
to offer sympathy in overwhelming quantities to the*poor sailor who 
braves the dangers of the deep on our war vessels in making long 
voyages such as the one here recorded from the Atlantic to the 
Pacific. In doing so they have in mind the sailors and the ships 
of long ago. Far be it from my purpose to cause a detraction from 
whatever may be due the American bluejacket. For, at best, the mere 
fact of his leaving home and loved ones far behind is sufficient to place him in a 
position demanding sympathy. 

The American battleship of today is far from being the ship of the Bon Homme 
Richard days, and the men who operate it arc of a type considerably different from 
the sailors of the olden times. In fact, technically speaking, they are not sailors in 
the true application of the word as used in the days before steam became harnessed. 

The enlisted men in the United States Naval Service are men taken from every 
part of the United States. They are men who represent every walk and station in 
life. Among them will be found men of the most liberal education and means, and, 
as a whole, the enlisted personnel incorporates probably a more versatile class of 
men than can be found in any community of corresponding numbers, for to the 
knowledge of which they themselves have been possessed before entering the service 
is added the training brought by discipline and service, and the broadening influence 
of travel. 

With the United States Atlantic Fleet on this memorable voyage were fifteen 
thousand men, we might say the pick of the nation. They were not so isolated as 
the layman might generally suppose them to have been, for the American man-of-war 
is a complete institution, and every opportunity will be found aboard for the younger 
members of the crew to further whatever may be their ambition. There are thou- 
sands of men in the service who, at the time of their enlistment, intended to make it 
their permanent vocation, or profession we might say, in life. There are others, thou- 
sands of them, whose sole intention upon enlisting in the service is to gain the expe- 
rience of travel, taking advantage of the opportunity offered by the service for seeing 
the world. Though a man may have spent but one term of enlistment in the naval 
service, he becomes more valuable to the nation, for at any time he will be found 
ready to answer a call to arms and he will ever be ready to take his place behind the 
great guns. 

It may appear to the layman that life aboard a man-of-war — routine, drill, and 
work — becomes monotonous. So it would were it not for the fact that the versatility 
of the men offers for it a remedy. The fleet of sixteen battleships might well be 
likened to a small city of corresponding population, the government of which, even, is 
similar. Should the equipment of these sixteen ships have been removed and placed 
on shore, with it could be established the foundation for a prosperous and thriving 
city with a population of fifteen thousand. 

Stores and provisions are ever aboard in as great quantities as would generally 
be found in stores and warehouses of any town of corresponding population ; the 



FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC. 



87 



medical stores and surgical appliances would equip a hospital larger than would be 
necessary in such a city; machinists, carpenters, bakers, cooks, and men representing 
every profession, would soon place the wheels of the city in operation. Even the

press could be established, for there are few battleships in the fleet which do not boast 
the publication of a newspaper, and most of these papers are ably edited. And the 
fact remains undisputed that farmers enough could be found to populate the suburbs.

Were an American battleship to be cast away on an uninhabited island, the story that 
the crew would tell would be one far different from that of Robinson Crusoe. 

With such material aboard the ship, the suggestion of almost anything in the 
form of entertainment means no less than its consummation. On every ship there is 
an organized dramatic company; and, when away from home, even though it be at 
sea, if a thirst cones for a dramatic performance, it is satisfied by presenting one

aboard the ship. If a ship be at sea, it is possible only to have in attendance the 
members of the ship's company; but if in port, accompanied by other ships, general 
invitations are extended and frequently a performance is presented upon the ship 
before an audience of three thousand people. These performances are rendered most 
creditably, notwithstanding the necessity of using exclusively a male cast and the

89 



limited space aboard ship for rehearsals. When the time comes for a performance, a stage 
is erected on the forecastle, the scenery for which has all been painted by the artists, 
of whieh there is never a lack aboard each ship. Many times do the dramatic com- 
panies of the ships present their performances ashore, and charities in all parts of the 
world have thus received substantial aid at the hands of the American sailors. 

Aside from the regular enlisted ship's band, there will be found on every ship 
an orchestra, and some of these orchestras contain as many as fifty pieces. Musicians 
are not hard to find in the enlisted personnel of the United States Navy. If a man 
enter the service at a time when he may have been studying music he can always find 
aboard a battleship a competent instructor, for among members of the ship's bands 
will be found the best musicians. 

The library of each ship is equipped with a supply of literature as complete as 
that in any library to be found in a city of fifteen thousand population, to all of which 
there are being added continually the latest and best volumes, which are regularly 
purchased by the Department from appropriations made for the purpose. Technical

volumes especially have been carefully selected, and the books of reference are gen- 
erally as much in demand in the ships' libraries as are the books of fiction. 

There is not one of the sixteen battleships which does not include in its equip- 
ment one or more pianos, and some of them have four. These instruments are 
equipped with automatic playing attachments; but it will be generally found that 
they are disconnected, for there are musicians among the men who are always readv, 
when time affords the opportunity, to render selections for their own practice, as well 
as for the edification of the ship's company. It is amusing to watch the occasional 
survivor of the days of hardtack and salt horse as he views the conditions in the service 
today. The evolution has been slow, and reluctantly does he accept it. He has a 
chance frequently to express his views on the "new navy" as he may hear some 
younger member of the crew complain at the breakfast table because his steak might 
be a bit overdone. "Kickin'," says he, " 'cause your ice-cream is too cold. You'd 
been glad enough to get a scrap of salt junk if you'd been shipmates with me twenty 
years ago. Why didn't your mamma ship a nurse girl with you." 



90 



WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 



It should not be inferred from the foregoing that the navy is one great play- 
house, for it is not. There is no walk in life where such a condition as this exists. 
There is work in the navy, and plenty of it, but it comes at its time as 
also comes the time for recreation. The visitor going aboard a ship and 
seeing such a great number of men seems to wonder what they are all there for, 
and comparison is immediately made with the merchant ship of the same tonnage, 
which would require less than one-twentieth of the number of men to operate it. 
Men appear to be sitting leisurely about the ship, occupied in various personal pur- 
suits. But the visitor does not take into consideration that he is aboard the ship 
during the leisure hours, at a time when the work is not going on. However, as he

is shown about the ship, and sees the labyrinth of passageways and the mechanism of 
the guns, the machinery, the dynamos, and other stations which when in operation 
require many hands, he begins to realize that employment can be readily found for 
as many men as he may have seen at leisure. He even wonders, after the mechanism 
of the ship has been shown to him, how it can all be operated by so few. 

His mind would be disabused of the thought that the navy is a playhouse 
were he to go aboard during the pastime of coaling ship. I say pastime because 
coaling ship is a play time for the reason that the men have chosen to make it such. 
Deep down in the bottom of his clothes-bag every man has a coaling suit. It may be 
one which has outlived its usefulness for dress occasions; it may be one of the non- 
regulation type with a collar a half inch too narrow, which has escaped the eagle 



FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC. 



91 



eye of his division officer, or it may be one rescued from the confining recesses of the 
lucky-bag, purchased from the master-at-arms, for the shining of a bunker plate. 
Coaling suits have histories, every one of them. They are as religiously cared for 
and as smoothly folded as the best tailor-made blues. 

"All hands rig ship for coaling!" That is the first word preparatory to the 
great event of coaling ship. Then comes a rush to the jack-stays. Out come the 
contents of bags/»intil the bottoms are reached and the shift is made. 

The lack of regulation, the absolute freedom to dress as one pleases, may be 
responsible for the wave of good humor which pervades a man-of-war during 
the evolution of coaling ship, the one great dirty job in the navy. Coaling ship 
reminds one of the little boy who was cheerfully pounding his finger with a hammer. 




THE OFFICERS COAL SHIP WITH THE MEN. 



When asked why he did it, he replied: ' 'Cause it feels so good when I quit." Every- 
body, from captain to powder-monkey, enjoys coaling ship because it feels so good 
when the job is done. 

When a collier comes alongside all thought of routine and regulation is cast to 
the four winds and a man can appear in any form of a lash-up. A man on one of 
the ships while coaling at Rio de Janeiro, as the work proceeded into the night, 
appeared on the scene dressed in an evening suit and wearing a silk hat. His silk hat 
was but short-lived, however. One or two lumps of coal were thrown a bit too low; 
and, discretion being considered the better part of valor, the beaver went over the side. 



92 



WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 



But his evening lash-up survived the job. Everybody, from the executive officer 
down, gets into the game, except the cooks, and their energies are doubled in the 
galleys in order to provide more abundantly for the ravenous appetites occasioned by 
the work. As soon as coaling begins the band comes on duty and from the bridge 
lively music is rendered, to the time of which shovels are wielded in the lighters and 
the clinking winches hoist the bags aboard and drag them to the tune of martial 
music to the points of distribution at the coal chutes. Coal dust penetrates the inner- 
most parts of the ship, filling the eyes, ears, and nostrils of everybody. But what 
matters that? Officers and enlisted men work alike, and after the process has pro- 
ceeded but a few moments all are disguised beyond a possible power of recognition. 
Politicians are brought to life, and nobody escapes the duty of coaling. Competition 
has made the life of coaling. Every hour the number of tons taken aboard is hoisted 
by signal from the yard arm, and if it be that two or more ships are coaling at the-

same time all hands work as a unit in an effort to keep the largest hoist flying from their 
respective ships. The same spirit of rivalry exists aboard each ship, each division 
trying to outdo the other. When the bunkers are filled and the collier has shoved 
off then comes what is known in the navy as a "field day." The field day is not a 
track meet, but in that it requires athletic exertion it is very similar to the field 
days we read about in college annuals. A field day on a man-of-war is a day when 
a dirty ship is made clean. Following the coaling the first coat of coal dust is re- 
moved with shovels and brooms, followed by an application of the deck hose from 
stem to stern. With all hands vigorously turned to, it is surprising to note the 
remarkably short space of time in which the ship is again clean and bright and back 
to its normal condition, for an American man-of-war is not in its normal condition 
unless it is clean and bright.

If a person were to think that there were more men aboard a battleship than 
were" necessary for its operation, he should witness the drill of general quarters. 
Every man is provided with a station for general quarters. Thoroughly to familiar- 
ize himself with this station is his first duty. It is interesting to watch the orderly 
commotion aboard a ship when the general alarm is sounded. It may be in the 
middle of the night, or it may be during a meal-time; at all events, the alarm is given 
at a time when* no one is expecting it. Were it that the duties of ten or twenty 
men depended upon one man for its execution, the alarm might be attended with con- 
fusion, but as even- man has but himself to look out for, but one duty to perform, 
the entire ship is ready for action in the time that is required for but one man to get to 
his station. The men whose duties are to unlock magazines have access to the keys, 
and when they arrive at their stations there will be found men ready to carry ammu- 




LIBERTY PARTY' RETURNING TO THE SHIP. 



nition from the magazines to the hoists, which have already been set in operation 
by men whose stations are there. Extra power is required from the dynamo room, 
but this is provided for on a moment's notice, as an extra engine is always kept 
"cracked." Gun pointers and crews go to their guns at the first tap of the gong; 
officers will be at their stations, and the range finder will be in the top ready to com- 
municate the range of an enemy's ship to every battery. An entire ■ ship's company 
may be sound asleep in their hammocks when the call to general quarters is sounded, 
and in three minutes from the time the alarm is given every gun on the ship is 
ready to fire. 

Clearing ship for action is a drill which requires more time. It is then that 
everything of a portable nature is removed from the decks and stored below. Boats 
are hoisted out and anchored away from the ship; the life rails are removed; gang- 



94 WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 

ways are taken away, and every article of wood or inflammable material is carried 
below tbe water-line and placed secure in store rooms. When a ship is cleared for 
action there is little on the deck from which splinters could be made by the exploding 
of a shell. Further to protect the guns' crews from possible danger of flying 
splinters, the entire deck is covered overhead with a great net. Carrying all mess 
tables, chests, and articles made of wood to the lower part of the ship is a process 
attending only the drill of clearing ship for action, for in actual service, when a ship 
is entering an engagement, such articles are thrown overboard, principally for the 
purpose of eliminating as far as possible the danger of conflagration. 

Fire quarters is a drill which requires quick, sharp and decisive action. Experi- 
ence has taught conditions which must be overcome in order more thoroughly to cope 
with conflagration aboard ship. It is effectually to overcome these conditions that 
fire quarters is inaugurated. In this evolution, as well as in general quarters, each 
man has his particular duty to perform. All water-tight doors throughout the ship 
are closed ; men stand by at flood cocks, awaiting the order to turn the sea into the 
magazines; hatches are closed; ventilators are shifted away from the wind, and all 
sources of ventilation which might aid a conflagration are shut off. The great fire 
pumps in the engine room are immediately started, keeping a heavy pressure on the 
fire mains, which lead to all parts of the ship. Hoses are connected with every plug 
and all hand grenades are concentrated at the scene of the fire. Such precautions may 
appear ridiculous to the outsider as he asks himself the question, "How can a steel 
ship burn?" It is not the steel in a ship which burns; but the inflammable material 
in the store rooms, if ignited and allowed the freedom of flames, would soon fire 
the magazines and effect the destruction of the ship. 

The duties attending collision quarters fall on but few, but their action must 
be quick and decisive. The first thing to do is to close all water-tight doors for the 
purpose of confining what influx of water may have been occasioned by the collision 
to the limits of one compartment. A collision-mat is then lowered over the side for 
the purpose of covering a hole which might have been made by the impact. The 
collision-mat is made from a great piece of canvas, to which is sewed marline or 
hemp and bound with iron chains. This mat is controlled by a series of lines origi- 
nally passed over the bow and under the ship in such a manner as to permit the 
hauling of a great piece of canvas so as to cover any portion of the hull below the 
water-line. 

The question has been suggested by a civilian, upon visiting a ship, "What would 
become of these men if a ship were to sink?'' Every man is given a position in a 
certain boat, and in the drill of abandoning ship he is made thoroughly conversant with 
the manner in which he is to save himself and provide for the safety of others. 
Certain store rooms are kept provided with stores to be used only in case of 
"Abandon ship." These stores consist of meat and bread, and breakers which are con- 
stantly filled with fresh water. Axes, saws, and other tools are also included in 
these store rooms. Candles and matches, and even flints and steel, are provided in 
water-tight cases. Kettles and pans and knives and forks and spoons are kept ready 
to be placed immediately in the boats when they leave the ship. 

When the word is passed to abandon ship these store rooms arc unlocked, where 
men will be waiting whose duty it is to carry certain boxes of stores to certain 
boats. Each man has his specific duty at this evolution. It is thus that all confusion 
is avoided, and repeated drills familiarize every man with the duty he is to perform. 



FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC. 



95 



When the boats leave the ship they are provided with sufficient stores to last the 
number of men which are assigned to them for several days. Thoroughly equipped 
with tools and instruments, arms and ammunition, a boat's crew thus landing, after 
a ship has been abandoned, will be fully equipped to meet conditions and provide 
themselves with a livelihood until such time as their rescue may be effected. 

Every precaution is observed on board the ship for the preservation of life, 
and the probability of accident is reduced to a minimufn. One of the first duties 
in preparing a snip for sea is to see that the lifeboats are properly rigged, that the 
automatic life-buoys are properly charged and in working order. When a ship is 
under way a man is placed on watch at the life-buoys whose duty it is to drop them 
immediately into the sea at the first cry of "Man overboard!" A lifeboat's crew 
is always in attendance on a boat and ready to be called away on a moment's notice. 
Crews are often drilled in the exercise known as "Man overboard," and seldom does a 




TARRING THE MAIN BRACE. 



OLD GLORY AT SEA. 



ship go to sea without performing this among the first evolutions of drill. As soon 
as the alarm is given a buoy is dropped from the stern of the ship, the torch of which 
ignites immediately upon coming in contact with the water. If it be that a man 
has fallen overboard, he will have no difficulty in locating the buoy if the accident 
occur at night. The engines are immediately reversed to full speed astern, but be- 
fore their influence has had time to be felt in the progress of the ship the lifeboats 
are in the water and the crews are desperately pulling toward the buoy. 

Frequently has the alarm of "Man overboard" been given when a ship has been 
under way at a speed of twelve knots an hour, when lifeboats have been lowered, 
life-buoys picked up, and the boats returned to their davits in six minutes from the 
time the alarm was first given. 

The fighting capacity of a man-of-warsman is not confined to the great guns 
or to the limits of his ship ; but he is always ready for duty on shore, where he is 
equipped and ready to fight with the artillery or infantry. To equip the battalion 



96 WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 

for field duty is a drill which requires a remarkably short time and the equipment 
corresponds exactly with the equipment of the infantry branch of our own army. 

The battalion organization of a man-of-war is a miniature army in every sense 
of the word. The various divisions of the landing force, consisting of two com- 
panies of bluejackets, forming infantry and artillery, one company of marines, the 
various special details, namely, signalmen, pioneers, hospital corps, ammunition party, 
commissariat, color guard, b.iglers and officers' servants, all of whom contribute their 
parts to the perfection of a force capable of coping with any condition of countrj 
or giving battle to any style of enemy. 

Each member of the companies is equipped with canteen, a knapsack containing 
a complete change of clothing, toilet articles, pipe and tobacco, mess outfit, etc., with 
blanket, poncho, rifle and ammunition. The signalmen are provided with telescopes 
and signal outfit, and act in the capacity of scouts and messengers. The "pioneers" 
are provided with picks, crowbars, spades, hammers, etc., in fact, everything necessary 
for the building or destruction of roads and bridges or for building camps. 

The ambulance party is composed of the hospital corps and assistants, who 
carry everything needed for aiding the sick or wounded. The commissariat is com- 
posed of cooks and cooking outfit. Thus, throughout the organization, the equip- 
ment is complete in every respect. 

When the bugle sounds the adjutant's call, the bluejacket company, to which 
the color guard is attached, marches on the line of the battalion; the marine company 
marches on the line to the right of the colors, forming the right of the battalion ; the 
remaining company of bluejackets dresses on the left of the color company, while the 
special details take up their stations in the rear. The battalion thus formed on 
board ship embarks in the boats, one section in a boat, and thus embarked, the artillery 
detail having lowered the field pieces into the boats, is towed to the shore prepared 
to execute its mission, whether that be only drill or to give battle to an enemy. 

Work of the battalion is done as though all hands were old soldiers, and should 
a campaign necessitate their landing, the sailors would probably be more thoroughly 
equipped than their comrades at arms on land. 

Every effort is employed to make the navy man proficient in the use of small 
arms, and to carry the efficiency of the sailor far beyond the limits of his ship should 
conditions demand him ashore. 

Whether it be a man's intention to remain in the service until retirement, or 
whether it be his intention to remain but for the period of his enlistment, the memory 
of the service will always be held as one from which he has derived more good than 
he could have obtained in any other school, for the navy is a great school. It is an 
institution of education.

IXTEEN big battleships, one would think, would crowd the capacity 
of a single land-locked bay, particularly as they were to engage in 
target practice; yet so vast is the extent of Magdalena Bay that the 
ships when on the outer range were hull down to the rest of the fleet 
anchored close to the shore. 

The Pacific fleet, having finished target practice, had left the 
timbers and other material necessary for the construction of target 
rafts and in a very short time after the arrival of the Atlantic fleet 
working parties were ashore building the rafts for the four ranges on which the ships 
were to fire. 

It was necessary also to coal the fleet. There was work enough — yes, plenty of 
it — for all hands; and, characteristic of men who do their work cheerfully, every man 
turned to with a will and dug into the work of the hour with the greatest enthusiasm. 
They were all after the trophy. 

Five days after the arrival of the fleet were all that were necessary for the lay- 
ing out of the four ranges, the construction of the rafts and for getting everything 
into readiness to begin firing. Several of the ships in the mean time had engaged 
in torpedo practice. 

This great fleet of ships had just completed a voyage of fourteen thousand miles,

DISCHARGE OF A TWELVE-INCH GUN. 



100 



WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 



On March 17th the Vermont, Kansas, Alabama, and Maine went on the range, 
and soon the hills were echoing the roar of the great guns. It was a rumble and a 
roar with a business twang to it, a roar very different from the combined efforts of 
the entire fleet as it fired its several choruses of salutes against the echoing mountains 
of other bays on the route from Hampton Roads. Following the first four ships on 
the range came the Louisiana, Illinois, Kearsarge, Georgia, Kentucky, Minnesota, 
Ohio, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Missouri, and Virginia. They all 
sang the same song and told the same story. 

As the ship steams on the course in front of the targets the signal to begin firing 
is sounded on the whistle, when the fusillade begins. Then comes the string of 
heavy shells flying in the direction of the targets, — not only in the direction of the

targets, but through them. It is interesting to watch a twelve-inch projectile in its 
flight. As it leaves the gun its course can be plainly traced with the eye. It looks 
like a great infuriated hornet dashing at something that has disturbed its nest. The 
waves of heat can plainly be seen radiating from the friction-heated projectile as it 
flies through the air. It strikes the water and immediately two great columns of 
water are thrown upward like some great geyser. Occasionally a projectile thus fired 
will strike the water and go downward ; but more frequently do they ricochet strik- 
ing the water again and again, each time throwing these great columns of water 
toward the sky. In watching the target practice of the battleships it is frequently 
the case that the flight of a ricocheting projectile could have been traced by as many 
as seven columns of water in the air visible at the same time. 



FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC. 



101 



When the big guns in the turrets are firing the concentrated and united efforts 
of twenty men are required in handling the ammunition and in loading and dis- 
charging the gun. Two men are employed in sighting the great rifles ; one controls 
the horizontal range and the other trains the gun vertically. Men are required at 
the breech, others at the electrically controlled rammers, others operate the ammuni- 
tion hoists, while several men are constantly at work in the handling room loading 
the hoists with projectiles and powder charges. It requires little energy for one to 
read about a crew having made twelve or thirteen shots in a little over three hundred 
seconds; but let him consider the energy that has been exerted by that crew in accom- 
plishing such a thing. In that short space of time projectiles to the aggregate weight 




INSPECTING A TARGET AFTER THE DAY'S SPORT. 

of six tons have been fired through a single gun by the explosion of two tons of 
powder, all of which has in that time been brought from the magazines and handling 
room forty-five feet below the gun. A hoist is loaded with projectile and powder 
charge ; it is hoisted to the gun ; the gun is loaded and the hoist immediately descends 
for another load, which is on its way to the gun before the preceding charge is fired. 
It is only by constant drill in uniformity of motion on the part of the entire gun 
and handling-room crew that it is possible to obtain such a rapidity of fire. 

"Danger!" has been the howl of the farmer critics. Danger? Is there any dan- 
ger? Certainly there is. The pedestrian will find that his journey across a street is 
accompanied with danger, for he may slip on a banana peel and fall in front of an 
electric car. There is danger in firing a twelve-inch gun, for a volcano might open

up under the ship at almost any time, and that might occur while a gun is being 
fired. Where can we go that we are not surrounded by danger? This matter of 
danger in the rapidity of fire in the American navy has been boiled down, evaporated 
and boiled down again, with the result that the American has come to the conclu- 
sion that he much prefers to take the small chance of blowing himself up with his 
rapid firing than to take the certain risk of himself betng blown up by an enemy 
while he is carrying ammunition to his forward guns from the after magazines. It 
has made a fatalist of him. If he is going to be blown up he is going to be blown up; 
but if he isn't he isn't; yet while there is any blowing up to be done he is certainly 
going' to have a hand in it himself. 

With the six-inch guns the same scientific theory has been practically applied to

eliminate lost motion when it comes to delivering projectiles from the muzzles of the 
guns without sacrificing the accuracy of aim. 

The first work is to get the ammunition from the magazines to the guns, which is 
done by means of electric bombs, to which the powder is carried by a file of men 
along the ammunition passage. The projectiles are laid about the gun in a convenient 
position for the crew to handle them quickly; the wooden boxes are removed from 
the outside of the large brass cases containing the powder charge. Two men are 
stationed at the sights to train the gun, and a most busy scene of uniform move- 
ments follows the command: "Load!" 

One man opens the breech, another places a loading tray to admit of the entrance 
of a projectile weighing a hundred pounds, which is thrown with sufficient force so 
that the rotating band fits firmly into the rifling of the gun. Following, a man places

the powder charge behind the shell, and the breech being closed the gun is ready to 
tire. 

1 he gun is fired ; the breech is open and a man stands by with heavily padded 
gloves to receive the empty powder case, which is heated to almost a red heat. Then 
in disregard of the dense volume of smoke which rolls from the breech the operation 
is quickly repeated. 

The heavy jj*un may thus be fired ten times in a minute. 

While the men behind the guns are shattering targets, it requires no little amount 
of work to keep the bull's-eyes in repair, so to this all-important stage in the process 
of target practice we will devote a little space in justice to the "repair outfit." 




REPAIR CREW WAITING FOR A NEW TARGET. 

When a ship is on the range, a small tug-boat is in attendance to carry targets, 
•and to tow the repair boat to and from the target after each string of shots 
is fired. 

Whereas the duties in the repair boat are far from a "snap," a vacant billet in 
the crew does not wait long for a volunteer from the powder division. 

After an early breakfast the targets for the day are loaded aboard the tug, and 
the crew, equipped with nameless articles in their repair kits, "open shop" for the 
business of the day, steaming to a position between which and the targets the firing 
ship passes. 

Simultaneously with a blast from the ship's whistle the first shot is fired, and 
<i rain of missiles flies at the target until the whistle for "Cease firing" sounds. It 



106 WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 

is then that the repair boat is called into action, and, steaming to the targets, a 
thorough inspection is made of the damage done. 

Counting the hits made by the Colt's automatic guns is a job which brings great 
joy to the hearts of the repair crew, especially if a good string has been fired, as 
each hole must be counted before the target is shifted. 

Unless the gun pointer is exceptionally at fault, it is necessary to shift targets 
after each string is fired; but the "system" for so doing has been«studied out to a 
nicety, and occupies the actual time of three minutes, during which, however, there 
is no loafing. 

When the main battery is firing, it is certainly a spectacular sight to see a six- 
inch shell strike the target raft amidships, when targets, raft and masts are mixed 
in a shower of splinters thrown skyward. This necessitates the reconstruction of 
the raft, material for which is provided against such an accident. Frequently a 
mishap requires the aid of others than the repair crew, when the ship engaged steams 
to their assistance, and, of course, a delay follows. 




FINISHED FOR ANOTHER TEAR. 
Hauling the beams of the target rafts ashore at Magdalena Bay, storing them for the next 

practice. 

After a string of shots is fired, should the target not be badly perforated, the 
torn pieces of canvas about the holes are simply painted red to distinguish them 
from the hits made in the following run. 

Masts are often carried away by a shot, but the work of replacing one is rapidly 
accomplished, so that the firing ship need not lose a run. 

The crew goes into the repair boat early in the morning, and there they remain 
until the work of the day is over. During the recess for dinner a steam launch 
carries the midday meal, hot from the galley, to the repair crew, where it is received 
with appetites well earned. 

The torn targets are put into the repah boar and transferred to the tug after 
they have proceeded to a point beyond the course of the ship, when new targets are 
taken in their places. 

When the last string is fired in the evening, the rafts are rigged with targets 
ready for the first string in the morning; and the repair outfit returns to the ship, which

has then come to anchor; the punctured targets are put aboard, and the work of the 
day is thoroughly discussed between spotters and umpire, with the target, like a 
teacher's chart, spread on the deck before them. 

When the repairmen get aboard they are immediately bombarded with a fusillade 
of questions from the various gun pointers, who have fired during the day, regarding 
the shots on their respective targets, and the tired outfit goes to sleep counting 
bull's-eyes in their dreams. 

While laudatory songs are being sung about the men behind the guns there are 
other men who contribute to the general success of things, and they are also deserving 
of a goodly share of the laurel wreaths. They are the men in the engineers' force, 
the men below the guns — "the black gang," as they are styled in the navy. What a 
powerless toy one of our big battleships would be in the hands of an enemy if it were 
not for the engineers. Deep down in the bottom of the ship, below the water-line, 
is the machinery, — the vitality of the ship. It is down there in front of the red 
furnace doors and in the steaming engine room that lies the direction of the ship's 
very life. Upon these people depends the operation of the great furnaces, boilers 
and engines which send the pulsating throb to the propellers. Upon these men

WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 



depends the action of the ship's great heart, which keeps the veins filled with the life- 
giving steam carried to all parts of the ship, the dynamo room, the pumps, the evap- 
orators and to the heat radiators which make the ship comfortable when the weather 
is cold. When it comes to the great unit, they are all men behind the guns. They 
all work in harmony for the accomplishment of the one end. Coaling ship is the 
operation of giving the shi$ its food. Coal is the greatest necessity. Everybody 
watches the operation of coaling ship with the keenest interest. But, where is that 
coal after the decks are all clean and white again? It is down below distributing its 
nourishment to the vitality of the ship under the direction of the men who wear the 
red watch mark. 

"Nestled at the base of the picturesque mountains on the crescent-shaped shore 
of Magdalena Bay there are quaint white houses, forming the pretty little Mexican 
village of Magdalena. Bathing its feet, the murmuring sea sings soft, sweet songs

This is a most beautiful scene from the distance; but distance lends enchantment. 

to the contented people, while the vista is complete in the verdure-clad hills which 
kiss the blue canopy of heaven above." 

So the stories of Magdalena Bay have run in one hundred and one newspapers 
and magazines of the country, over the signatures of some of our most noted con- 
tributors to current literature. One cannot criticise them for having written so. The 
deceptions have not been intentional ; for the writer had no need to draw deeply 
on his reserve of sentimental adjectives as he looked across the placid blue waters 
between the anchorage and the shore and ruminated on imaginary conditions through 
the smoke of a clear Havana without taking the trouble of going ashore. How true 
it is that "distance lends enchantment." The quaint white houses are the squalid 
abodes of turtle fishermen, and the sole verdure of the hills rests in the many varieties 
of cacti, parasites subsisting on the air. 

Truly Magdalena Bay is a beautiful harbor — a wonderful harbor for target 
practice and for fishing — but with these two features to commend it its beauties 
cease. 



FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC. 109 

The same old crow is found on the shores of Magdalena Bay, speaking 
the same language as that familiar with the inquisitive, jetty bird in the Indiana 
cornfields, and clumsily hopping among the cacti on the shore, he debated in noisy 
chatter with the pelicans which flapped their heavy wings in the surf as the Atlantic 
Fleet entered the bay, disputing the right of the great white things to invade their 
quiet haunts, to disturb the serenity of things with the nju'se of their great guns. The 
crow, that sabft bird, how he makes his presence known in all parts of the world, 
and how cleverly he adapts himself to the modes and manners of all latitudes. He 
may be robbing the cornfields in Indiana, stealing nuts in Vermont, destroying the 
fruit in California, seeking his food on the shores of Alaska, and with equal ease 
will he feed upon the surf-beaten clams or stranded camarones on the coast of Mexico. 

Lizards run among the rocks at Magdalena, and hide beneath the thorny pro- 
tection of the rambling cacti, which, like great serpents, cling to the ground, occa- 
sionally raising their heads apparently to view the surroundings. 

The shore of Magdalena is not what the big fleet came to see. Work! That's 
what it came for, — the goal of the season's preparation, target practice. Yet in 
idle moments, which occasionally occurred, there was a little time for other things.

ment to destroy the monotony of a stay in any part of the world, no matter how re- 
mote it be from civilization and regardless of prevailing conditions. He can make 
the sea his home, and in doing so he has but learned the art of adapting himself 
to circumstances. In port and ashore he can enjoy the amusements there offered. He 
can eat of the overflowing cornucopias of luxury, yet in Magdalena, which the sail- 
ors termed "the last place the Lord made," he contented himself equally as well, and 
furnished sports and amusements pleasing to himself when time for the one object 
of the visit afforded it. When the strenuous work of firing on the range was over; 
when the practical application of the theoretical side of placing mines demonstrated 
their efficiency; after the torpedoes had gone squarely between the stoke boats from 
the submarine tubes in the ships' sides; after the colliers had been relieved of their 
cargoes, and the great ships had been prepared for admirals' inspection, then the boat- 
loads of sailors could be seen drawing their seines on the beach, from each haul 
of which would be brought ample reward for their work. At any time of the day 
there could have been seen interesting struggles with the great Jewfish and red 
snapper from whaleboats, dingeys, cutters, punts, and even from the ships' sides, while 
the gamy yellowtails and barracudas darted in the wake of steam launches to grab 
the bait of red flannel on the hooks which trolled behind.

Massed bands of the first squadron at drill in Magdalena. 

The absolute lack of shade trees, the utter devastation of sand did not prevent 
the baseball enthusiasts from laying out a diamond on the bleak sandspit north of 
the little settlement, where many match and practice games were played. Scrambling 
through the thorny cacti on the mountain sides parties of mountain climbers were 
daily seen apparently personifying Longfellow's hero in "Excelsior." But there were 
no fair maidens on those rocky trails to bid the adventurer pause to rest. Contests 
of endurance and strength, which had been waiting for many months of strenuous 
life, were brought to conclusion in several boat races where the best men won. 

With admirals' inspection concluded, the strenuous work, which so thoroughly 
demonstrated the efficiency of this powerful fleet, so thoroughly proved its ability to 
travel, to follow an enemy and not be found wanting in the hour when further exer- 
tion or energy would be required, then came the time for rest; then came the time 
for play; and in absence of society, theatres and banquet halls, the sailors found 
amusement even in Magdalena Bay. Melba did not appear in grand opera in 
Magdalena; Henry Irving would have found no inducement on the shores of this 
barren isle; no Jeffries, Corbett or Fitzsimmons paraded in fistic encounters for the 
sailors; nevertheless the thirst for opera, the desire for drama, and the taste for 
pugilistic food were all satisfied. Minstrel, vaudeville and real theatrical talent is

THE KLEET "MUSIC" GETTING INTO MARCHIN* 



FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC. 



Ill 



abundant in the navy, and on each ship there is sufficient material to bring to a 
climax a performance, a show, which would cause the landlubber to sit up and 
take notice. Thus each of the sixteen big ships had its turn of entertaining at Magda- 
lena Bay. 

As the day for the departure to "God's country" grew near the crews of the 
great ships' bore happy expressions, and the ships themselves seemed to smile ; a literal 
smile did brighten their countenances as the smoke of Battle was cleared from them. 
Responding to the persistent tattoo of chipping hammers, the stacks, superstructures, 
and sides of the ships, passed through several stages of evolution in facial expression. 




THE LAST SHOT. 
Blast of compressed air blowing residue from guns after firing. 

Freckles (rust-spots) were removed under the magic touch of Dr. Chipping Hammer. 
Blistered stacks received the soothing touch of the same doctor. Smoke-stained 
masts and tops surrendered their service-tanned expressions before the 
vigorous attacks of sand and canvas. Then came the Mephistophelian grin of red 
lead and the finishing touches of spar color and white, fresh from the paint lockers, 
not a holiday showing from bow to stern. Fore, main and after stays soon received 
the finishing touches at the hands of a nimble sailor, who clear above his shipmates, 
in the sky, as it were, looked like a spider weaving his web, answering the call of his 
division leader when it became necessary to tar down. A thankless job it is to tar 
down. It requires skill to climb across the stays from truck to truck and coat wire

lines with tar. It requires care to execute the work without spilling some below. 
Generally when a man comes from aloft after this precarious job he is met by 
several coxswains, whose newly scrubbed boat covers have suffered from dropping 
tar, or by some other who might have received the contents, or a part of it, from 
the tar pot while calking off beneath the shade of the smoke stack on a bridge deck. 

During the trials and tribulations of repeated field days after target practice, from 
stem to stern, from keel to tfWk, no spot on any of the great ships escaped the eagle 
eyes of the first luffs, who directed the application of chipping hammers, sand, can- 
vas, soap, and fresh water obtained through many yards of red tape by fair means or 
by foul, emery and sandpaper, polished off with brilliant shine and silicon. Finished! 
Clean, spick and span was every ship on the day before the departure from Magdalena 
Bay. Even quarters was forgotten, except on one ship, as armed with telescopes and 
field glasses, those interested watched the regatta with keenest interest. Some slum- 
bered in parts of the ship where the semi-tropical breeze brought dreams of home — 
dreams of those who were waiting with extended arms to welcome them. Others 
sat on ditty-boxes, writing to mothers, wives and sweethearts, who were ever watch- 
ing and waiting for the postman to bring the expected letter from son, husband or 
lover. Letters left each of the sixteen big ships, containing vivid accounts of the 
great events during target practice, and from each of the sixteen ships were scores 
of letters telling how "we won the trophy." It is too bad that they could not all 
have won the trophy, but it is that commendable individual assurance, that keen com- 
petition, that desire for victory, that has brought the target practice in the United 
States Navy to its almost miraculous state of perfection. 

Forgotten in a day were the tedious weeks and months of "ping pong," the 
fatiguing grind at the loading machine, the back-breaking tests of ammunition hoists 
— sending projectiles on deck from the magazines and sending them back again, and 
doing it over once more, and then some. Yes, forgotten in a single day were those 
strenuous weeks and months of preparation after the great harvest had been reaped, 
and the golden store had been sent to Washington. Even the chronic kickers forgot 
to kick on that memorable day of the voyage when on Saturday, April 10, 1908, that 
leg of the voyage was started which would bring the fleet again to God's country.

210 WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 



[HL'S a home: the smoking lamp is never out." That is the optimistic 
way that the crews of the supply ships, Glacier and Culgoa, have of 
looking at life aboard. And then, too, there is the "machinery boat," 
the Panther, a happy combination between a "work house" and a 
"home." 

These l^iree ships formed the auxiliaries of the fleet. The 
Yankton, too, was with them; but it seemed as thoilfh she considered 
herself an independent unit of the combination of fleet and auxiliaries. 
She it was that followed the Connecticut as a pilot fish follows a shark. "Always 
there," the Yankton won a place in the hearts of all hands in that big fleet, for she 
brought mail ; and no one ever heard the word passed : "Lay aft all the Yankton's 
working party!" This could not be said of the other two ships, the Glacier and the 
Culgoa ; but if such had not been the case there would have been a hungry lot of men 
in that fleet as it steamed around South America. The people with the "chow" were 
the people to be respected. 

The paymaster seems to be the big man on a supply ship ; he is cumbered w T ith 
much responsibility and invariably his hair will be found prematurely gray. The 
doctor is there because the regulations prescribe that he should be. But what a relief 
it is to be on a supply ship. One can actually hold an uninterrupted conversation 
with a "line" officer for ten minutes without having him excuse himself with remarks 
something like these: "Excuse me for a moment, I think that I forgot to label that 
gun 'Bore Sighted,' " or, "Pardon me, while I write down this idea I have for the 
control of the fire of Colt's automatic; I may forget it; and I think that its application 
will win the trophy for this ship." 

The Panther is a floating machine shop and foundry ; and during the voyage she 
was ever ready to make a casting to replace something that might have been fractured 
on one of the big battleships. One entire deck is devoted to a large machine shop, 
and it would have to be a big job indeed that the Panther could not turn out. 

Sometimes, leaving port ahead of the fleet, the supply boats were overhauled 
before the next port m as reached. Sometimes the order of things was reversed ; and 
the supply boats overhauled the fleet. At all events, whenever the fleet arrived at a 
port, there as punctually as clock-work were the supply ships with hatches o(5en 
waiting for the boats to come alongside for stores. 

South American beef trusts were very much surprised and disappointed when 
they learned of the capacity of the Glacier's refrigerators, and w-hen they found no 
sale for the supplies of beef they had been preparing in anticipation of the arrival of 
the fleet. There was abundance of good, fresh, United States beef in the Glacier's 
cold storage when the fleet arrived at Magdalena. 

The Culgoa made an "extra trip" to San Diego, California, for a load of 
supplies for the fleet during target practice, incidentally taking a cargo of mail and a 
few pencil-pushers of the daily press and some snap-shotists. The two ships took "turn 
about" with the heavy work; and so it was the Glacier's turn to make the next trip 
for supplies for the fleet while it was celebrating along the coast of California. 

The Glacier sailed from Magdalena Bay two days before the fleet with San 
Francisco for its destination. 

The supply boats bore the distinction of being the first of the fleet to reach 
home soil after the voyage. The Culgoa touched at San Diego and the Glacier at 



FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC.

San Francisco. The whale-boat's crew' of the Glacier was the first lot of men of the 
fleet to have landed in San Francisco; and theirs was the duty of taking a boat load 
of mail to the postoffice. Then followed the same old routine of the supply boat- 
load, return to the fleet and unload. 

These supply boats may appear to be tramps, great cargo steamers; they may not 
have ping pong and target practice ; the commanding officer may even pass up the 
bag inspection an# general muster, but they are navy, just the same. The same men 
will be found aboard them that one will find on the battleships, the same officers, the 
same field days and the same application of sand and canvas to the end of maintaining 
the same white decks, spotless paint-work and polished brass. 

Auxiliaries they are, but what a potent factor they make in the great fleet which 
could not proceed without them.

TIE CRUISE 



of ftlhe 



TORPEDO FILOTHIUILA 





218 WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 

.ITHERTO our story has described the peaceful adventures of the sixteen 
great battling giants which triumphantly made their way in face of 
wind and wave from Hampton Roads to the Western Coast. But not 
all the glory belongs to the imposing white fleet. A fortnight before 
the battleships set out on their voyage another fleet had departed from 
the same sljores, made up of craft in every particular unlike the big 
boats excepting that the personnel of officers and cfews was made of 
the same material and one general purpose governed in every move- 
ment. The two fleets were equally loyal to the Stars and Stripes; both rejoiced in 
belonging to the navy of the United States. 

The ships of the torpedo flotilla were painted jet black; they were constructed 
in as light a manner as was consistent with safety; their purpose was to contrive a 
maximum of swiftness and stealth; their business in war called for just such char- 
acteristics in a ship as reduced the comfort of its crew to a minimum in a long, dis- 
tressful voyage. No one at all acquainted with the history of naval affairs during 
the last thirty years needs to be told of the importance of the torpedo and the torpedo' 
destroyer, and thus of the torpedo boat and the torpedo boat destroyer, in all times 
of war or rumors of war. And in the peaceful cruise of the navy from east to west, 
the little black fleet had rather more than its share of the hardships and vicissitudes of 
the voyage. 

The ships of the flotilla were six in number, namely, the Whipple, the Lawrence, 
the Hopkins, the Stewart, the Truxtun, and the Hull. The Whipple was the 
flagship, and the fleet was under command of Lieutenant H. I. Cone. 

Precisely at twenty-six minutes after eleven o'clock, on December 2, 1907, 
the signal to proceed was hoisted by the IL S. S. Whipple, and the entire flotilla 
formed column and steamed away from Lynnhaven Bay, Virginia, with San Fran- 
cisco in view as the ultimate destination. The weather was fine, and for some time 
nothing occurred to suggest that the fleet of little ships was not on a holiday 
excursion. 

On the night of the second day out one of the crew of the U. S. S. Hull 
died suddenly, and the next morning many of the young sailors witnessed for the 
first time the ceremony of burial at sea. 

On the 5th the flotilla was struck by the northeast trade winds and rough 
weather prevailed until Porto Rico was sighted. Stormy seas mean more to men 
aboard the torpedo boats than to those on the battleships. The ground swell made 
the boats roll so badly that they were washed at will by the inconsiderate billows 
to the no small discomfort of the voyagers. All the fresh bread got wet, became 
mouldy, and had to be tossed overboard. The roll was so precipitate that it was 
impossible to cook anything. 

No wonder, then, that the men on the flotilla looked forward joyously to their 
first stopping-place, on Porto Rico. They passed by Morro Castle at the entrance 
and dropped anchor in the harbor of San Juan at half-past ten on the morning of 
December 7th. Thus the total run from Hampton Roads to San Juan, a distance 
of thirteen hundred and ten miles, was made in a trifle less than five days. 

During the few days the flotilla was at anchor the bluejackets made the most 

of their chance to see this typical Spanish-American town, to go over Morro Castle, 

to visit Fort Cristobal, or to take tramps into the country to the sugar plantations. 

On the morning of the 12th the flotilla weighed anchor and headed for Port 



FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC. 219 

of Spain, Trinidad, the first stopping-place of the battleship fleet. The little vessels 
passed into the Dragon's Mouth, between Trinidad and Venezuela, and anchored 
off Port of Spain on the 14th. The boys were much interested in the peculiar 
English-speaking black population of the island. The next day, being Sunday, they 
visited the Hindu village on the outskirts of the town, where the Orientals live 
according to their ancient customs and worship with the ceremonies and rites 
peculiar to their^eligion. Some of the sailors visited 2>ne of the temples, where 
the people, wearing only loin cloths, seemed to be worshiping the sun. 

Some of the bluejackets also went to see the leper asylum, about five miles out 
in the country. This institution is maintained by Great Britain, and is conducted 
with admirable care. The buildings are good and suitable, and the sanitary regu- 
lations adequate. The unfortunate patients are seen in all stages of the disease, 
and contrasting with the unhappy affliction of the inmates is the cheerful mien of 
the Sisters of Mercy who have devoted their lives to the amelioration of the suffer- 
ings of those doomed to this dread scourge. 
» The bluejackets had their hopes raised by the arrival of the Arethusa from 

the United States at Port of Spain. The Arethusa was their payship. For some 
reason, however, their hope of replenishment of pocket money was doomed to disap- 
pointment, notwithstanding many of them were temporarily bankrupt and in need 
of "small stores." 

December 22d the flotilla got under way for Para. As they were making 
about eighteen knots an hour down the coast an accident on the Lawrence necessitated 
the return of the flotilla to the harbor. 

Apropos of this accident to one of the vessels of the torpedo flotilla, the reader 
may have noted in the newspapers, when the movement of torpedo boats are chron- 
icled, that it is not infrequent that mention is made of delay on account of repairs. 
Occasional accidents are unavoidable from the very nature of the craft and the purposes 
for which they are built. The powerful engines and machinery within and the storms 
without keep the frail ship in constant tension, and the tumbling of the light vessel 
in heavy seas is a constant menace to the complicated structure of the machinery. The 
noteworthy fact in this connection is, not that accidents are unavoidable, but that they 
are effectually repaired with so little damage to the ship and so little loss of time. 
The modern man-of-warsman needs many more brain-cells than his forerunners 
possessed in the days when the Shannon and Chesapeake sailed the seas. Then the 
ravages of wind and wave were repaired by ship's carpenter and sail-maker. Today 
the more of a machinist a man is the better sailor he is. The United States Navy is 
full of men who are skilled machinists and electricians, men competent to meet any 
mechanical emergency on sea or land, and nowhere can a larger percentage of these 
capable artificers be found than in the various units of the torpedo fleets. That the 
six black ships of the torpedo flotilla were able to make the great voyage around the 
Horn at all, especially in so successful a manner, is due, more than to anything else, 
to the vigilant and industrious devotion of the able engineers and mechanics in their 
crews. 

The return to Port of Spain enabled the flotilla to see the battleship fleet, which 
steamed into the harbor the day after the flotilla had come back for repairs, and 
the boys on the smaller vessels enjoyed the splendid and warlike array of the great 
white ships as they rode at anchor in a foreign port. The admiral gave orders 
for the flotilla to sail again at eight o'clock on the morning of December 25th. So 



220 WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 

that, while the thousands on the battleships spent Christmas at Port of Spain, and 
races and functions were enjoyed on land by officers and "liberty parties," as 
described in a preceding chapter, the flotilla boys rode out to sea to celebrate probably 
the loneliest Christmas that many of the younger ones had ever experienced. Thev 
had a very good Christmas dinner, however, and then most of those who were not 
on watch sat around with their heads in their hands, and it required no mind reader 
to guess that their thought^were far away with the home folk. 

Rough weather again overtook the pygmy fleet, and rolling' billows reduced 
the diet to hardtack and " salt horse." 

Already in this history the story has been told of the encounter of the battle- 
ship fleet with Neptunus Rex and his retainers. That encounter was dated in the 
narrative January 4, 1908. Several days before this occurrence, namely, on December 
30, 1907, the flotilla had run up against his royal majesty. At fifteen minutes past 
eight on that morning the little vessels found themselves in Latitude 0° 00' 00", and 
the usual ceremonies were in order and all landlubbers were punctiliously initiated. 

On the afternoon of that same day the flotilla entered the mouth of the Amazon, 
took on a pilot, steamed up the channel, and anchored off Para, Brazil. 

Para, like San Juan, was a stopping-place for the flotilla which did not enter 
into the itinerary of the battleships. This little tropical town contains about ten 
thousand inhabitants. The Botanical Gardens, which are very fine, were much 
enjoyed by the bluejackets. Otherwise they found the place rather uninteresting. 

Pernambuco was reached on the morning of January 10th. The bluejackets 
were quite ready to enjoy their stay in this attractive city of two hundred thousand 
inhabitants. It is divided by the two rivers, Capibaribe and Biberibe, into three 
sections connected by bridges. Water buffalo take the place of horses in general use. 
and the narrow gauge street cars are drawn by pairs of small donkeys. The country 
surrounding Pernambuco is of the flat pampas nature, with a few small hills here 
and there. All kinds of tropical birds and fruits are abundant and very cheap at 
this port. It is also an important commercial center on account of the sugar refineries 
in the interior, and the harbor is constantly full of vessels of all nations. 

While the vessels were moored to the breakwater at Pernambuco a man belong- 
ing to one of the crews was drowned, on the night of January 12th. His name was 
H. E. Gray, a fireman of the second class. 

On the afternoon of January 13th the flotilla left Pernambuco en route to 
Rio de Janeiro. On this part of the long voyage the flotilla had the best of weather, 
and those who had never been south of the equator before had an advantageous 
opportunity to study the Southern Cross and the other peculiarities of the heavens 
beyond the equatorial line. The moon was round in its maturity, and the jest went 
round that it was full in more senses than one, as the "man in the moon" was evi- 
dently standing on his head. 

Rio de Janeiro was reached about four in the afternoon of January 21st. The 
flotilla had arrived at the entrance of the harbor three hours before, and the voyagers 
could not help contrasting the mountains hemming the harbor with the flat country 
they had left behind. After the little vessels had threaded the three miles' length 
of the neck of the harbor, which is very winding, and well fortified on both sides, 
the city came suddenly into view, and the eyes of the sailors were gladdened to see 
anchored in the harbor the great battleship fleet which they had last seen riding the 
tranquil water at Port of Spain. There were also several Brazilian and Italian war-

ships, one German battleship, and hundreds of merchant vessels from all over the 
world. The city of Rio, lying to the left of the entering flotilla, presented a picture 
with all these ships in the foreground which could not easily be forgotten. We have 
already described the generous hospitality accorded by the people of Brazil to the 
navy of the United States. 

The flotilla left Rio de Janeiro at eight in the evening of January 21st. The 
schedule had set Montevideo, Uruguay, as the next stop, but the Argentine Govern- 
ment had sent so urgent an invitation for the vessels to visit Buenos Ayres that the 
fleet made that port their next destination. After a pleasant voyage without serious 
mishap the fleet reached the mouth of the La Plata on the morning of January 2bth. 
About ten o'clock they were met by the Argentine Torpedo Flotilla and escorted up 
the river in state. They passed near enough to Montevideo to get a general view of 
the city. Anchoring over night in the outer roads off Buenos Ayres, earlv next morning 
they took on a pilot and steamed to the fine large docks of the city. 

The outer roads were filled with merchant vessels waiting their turns at the 
docks, and the sailors were impressed with the idea that Buenos Ayres was a.< 
important a shipping point as Rio. They thought that if Rio was the New York ot 
South America, Buenos Ayres might with propriety be called the Chicago or Phila- 
delphia. The* architecture seemed to them artistic and modern, without the hard 
lines so characteristic of the buildings in New York. The principal streets were alwav • 
crowded, but lacked the hustle and bustle of the chief cities in the United States. 
All the inhabitants, especially the naval men, vied with each other in extending 
courtesies to the visitors. 

Buenos Ayres has an 'American" church, as the city contains a good rnanj 
people from the United States. The minister of this church had arranged for a 
special song service for the Sunday night after the arrival of the flotilla. About two 
hundred of the bluejackets attended. They heard a "good American sermon" and 
some old American songs and several solos. Afterwards they adjourned' to the lecture 
hall and had tea and cakes. Next night the Argentine sailors gave the visiting blue- 
jackets a theatre party. All the program was in Spanish, but some American songs 
had been introduced. "My Irish Molly," "Bill Bailey," and others were sung in 
Spanish to the great amusement of the sailors, and all were heartily encored. Next 
night they had a dinner in the naval yard, and though the boys were short on Spanish, 
they made known their thanks and appreciation by the gusto with which they enjoyed 
the banquet. Then followed a dance. The days were spent in seeing sights afoot. 
on the double-decker, English-made street cars, or in the automobiles freely placed 
at the disposal of the visitors. For Thursday the American Athletic Association had 
planned a field day, and the men of the flotilla played ball, ran foot races, and had 
a tug-of-war against teams of the Association, in all of which contests the sailors 
were the victors. 

On the departure from Buenos Ayres on January 30th, as the flotilla steamed 
down the channel and out into the river, the docks on both sides of the channel were 
thronged with many cheering thousands. The Argentine Flotilla escorted the fleet 
as far as Montevideo. 

Just after the escort had turned around to steam back a young stowaway was 
discovered on one of the American vessels. He was a boy from Boston, who had 
hidden in the bunkers the night before. 

The voyage to Punta Arenas saw the roughest weather yet experienced. It was 



FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC. 225 

cold and disagreeable and the sea very boisterous. No one could take any rest during 
these days. The light craft danced and plunged so that sleep was impossible. In 
order to eat, one had to do a flying trapeze act for every mouthful, holding on by 
both feet and one hand, leaving the other hand free to grab in the catch-as-catch-can 
game. Most of the "young salts" gave up eating in favor of "the fasting method" 
about the second day out. 

The storm h»i slightly abated when the lights on either side of the Strait of 
Magellan were sighted about half-past three in the morning of February 4th. and 
that afternoon the fleet anchored at Punta Arenas. Here the flotilla was reunited 
with the battleship fleet. 

About eleven at night on February 7th the flotilla, in company vnth the battle- 
ships, left Punta Arenas for the passage through the Strait. As before narrated, the 
Chilian cruiser Chacabuco piloted them on their way. The two fleets kept together 
until four o'clock in the afternoon of the next day, when the battleships kept on 
through the Strait proper, while the flotilla entered Smythe Channel, and continued 
rTie course up among the numerous islands to the north and west of the Pacific 
entrance to the Strait. 

The next morning dawned clear and cold. The grand but dismal scenery beg- 
gared description. The same general appearance was presented as the day before, 
except that the sides of the mountains were very bleak and barren, being covered 
with huge boulders and smaller rocks, relieved by no vegetation save a few insig- 
nificant bushes along the water's edge. Such scant human life as was encountered 
was as cheerless as the environment. Occasional columns of smoke had led the sailors 
to keep a sharp lookout for the appearance of Patagonian savages. On the 9th their 
vigilance was rewarded, for they saw a canoe put out from shore and head toward 
the fleet. So the flotilla stopped to give the men a chance to "have a look." The 
boat was of the rudest type. It was not built of birch bark or deftly hollowed our 
of a log and modeled into a neat canoe, as is the case with Indian handicraft, but 
was a very miserable affair built of rough-burnt planks lashed together with thongs. 
The oars were more rough planks lashed to very rude poles. The boat was about 
fifteen feet length by about three feet beam. In the center was a small fire, around 
which squatted four men, three women, and eleven children. Although the mercury 
was trying to knock the bottom out of the glass, and the Americans had on everything 
they could pile on and still felt liable to freeze, these natives had only small skins 
thrown loosely around them. The sailors gave them such scraps of tobacco and food 
as were available, and the flotilla resumed its way. 

On the 10th the flotilla came opposite a ravine in which there was a monster 
glacier from which pieces of ice weighing probably two thousand tons each had broken 
oft and rolled into the sea. On rounding a point the vessels had come suddenlv on 
these dislodged fragments, but had avoided a collision with any of them. The flotilla 
stopped, and each ship went alongside one of the icebergs and took on a load of ice. 

The channel became more and more crooked, and each ship was obliged to 
describe a figure "8" about every ten minutes. At times the vessels came in sight of 
a mountain rising sheer out of the water directly in front of them, apparently com- 
pletely blocking the channel, but on reaching it they would find a narrow passage 
round the side of it, occasionally so narrow that the sailors could almost reach out 
and touch the shore. In fact, for about two-thirds of the way in these channels 



226 WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 

a small boy in the center of one of the vessels could have tossed a pebble to either 
shore. 

The flotilla passed through Icy Channel, ten miles long, getting its name from 
the superlative coldness induced by the proximity of a number of large glaciers. There 
are several turns at almost right angles in this narrow passage, which the vessels 
could make only with the utmost risk. There are millions of ducks and other water- 
fowl in this channel, and $he sailors found entertainment in taking wing shots at them. 

On the afternoon of the 11th the fleet arrived at the village of Quellon, a place 
with about five hundred inhabitants. It possesses some importance, however, as it 
is a lumber exporting port and has an alcohol distilling plant. The place also enjoys 
an electric light system, which struck the sailors as rather funny in this remote quarter 
of the earth on account of the smallness of the community. The inhabitants brought 
out poultry, eggs, vegetables, etc., which they preferred to exchange for clothing and 
tobacco rather than for money. 

After spending the night here the fleet pushed on and next day again struck 
open water. It was here that they encountered the peculiar sea growth called kelp. 
It grows in large bunches, some masses being anchored by the roots to rocks and 
called "fixed kelp" and others floating around. While they were lying to, waiting 
for the fog to lift, this floating kelp completely surrounded the ships and gave them 
the appearance of being lifted out of the water and set high and dry upon some 
island. Its branches and roots are very tenacious, and the flotilla experienced a good 
deal of trouble in getting clear of it when ready to proceed. 

On February 15th the little black ships arrived at Talcahuano, Chili. Talca- 
huano is situated in a small angle on the southwest side of Conception Bay. This 
bay is said to be the finest harbor on the west coast, and to the sailors it seemed to 
compare favorably with that of Rio de Janeiro, supposed to be the best in the world. 
The surrounding country is mountainous, the heights ranging from seventeen to 
eighteen hundred feet. It has little to boast of in the way of architecture, although 
the Plaza is very pretty — paved with tiles and adorned with flowers. The place 
boasts a few small street cars drawn by donkeys. Each car is operated by a man and 
his wife. The man is the "motorman" and the woman the conductor. The sailors 
enjoyed the novelty of paying their fares to a woman. 

Nine miles from Talcahuano is the City of Conception. Some of the men 
availed themselves of the opportunity of visiting it on the steam cars. 

On February 25th the flotilla left Talcahuano for Callao, Peru, the first stop- 
ping-place scheduled for the battleships after leaving Punta Arenas. Land was lost 
to view at half-past four in the afternoon and was not sighted again until the morning 
of March 1st, when the flotilla arrived off the entrance of the harbor of Callao, the 
day after the battleship fleet had departed. One experience on the voyage impressed 
the sailors. About two days from Callao all the "bright work," the polished brass, 
about the ship began to turn a peculiar blue and purple, much to the consternation 
and distress of the men detailed to shine it up. This was caused by the "Peruvian 
Painter." Along the coast of Peru there are numerous saltpetre mines, and, this 
being the effect saltpetre has on brass, as soon as the ships came within twenty or 
thirty miles of the coast, all the bright work started to turn, and rubbing and polishing 
could not remove the tarnish. 

On March 9th the flotilla sailed north, and again its course diverged from that 
of the great white fleet. Panama was the goal of this leg of the voyage, and this 



FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC. 227 

destination was sighted on the 14th. To reach anchorage the little ships threaded 
their way through several small hilly islands, and cast anchor in Panama Roads, about 
tour miles off shore just opposite La Boca, the Pacific terminal of the canal. It was 
necessary to anchor at this distance from shore because there is a twenty- foot rise 
and fall of the tide at this place. 

The city of Panama did not strike the voyagers as beautiful, although tftey would 
• not call it ugly eitlier. Most of the buildings are unattractive, but as there are several 
thousand Americans here now the place is becoming more and more Americanized. 
The canal employees, for the most part, live just outside of Panama in a settlement 
called Ancon, or perhaps it would be more correct to say that Ancon is only a name 
for an integral part of Panama itself. Uncle Sam built their quarters and furnished 
them free of charge. They are plain but not bad looking, convenient and models 
of cleanliness. The United States authorities have transformed the American strip 
along the Isthmus from a swampy, dirty, unhealthful wilderness into a clean, bright, 
wholesome region, with the most sanitary conditions. This has been the work of 
*nly a very few years. 

The sailors, of course, many of them, availed themselves of the chance to see 
the canal operations. The railroad across the Isthmus made visits to the canal possible. 
On March 21st Rear Admiral Rousseau, U. S. N., had three hundred of the blue- 
jackets as his guests on a special train for a trip along the canal. They were landed 
by a tug at La Boca at nine in the morning, where the special train was waiting for 
them. About five miles east of Panama and a couple of miles east of Culebra the 
train crosses the canal on a trestle, and a short but good view can be had of the canal 
in both directions. On the right the famous Culebra Cut is visible from this point. 
About fifteen minutes later the train reached Culebra, the highest point on the Isthmus, 
and the location of the greatest obstacle that has to be overcome. The canal has to 
be cut through a range of hills. This has proved rather difficult, but it is being 
accomplished, nevertheless. 

The train was backed around on a spur to the side of the canal that the visitors 
might see the monster steam shovels at work. These huge machines remove five cubic 
yards of earth at a time, and make three digs a minute. They are mounted on tracks, 
and can be run up and down the bed of the canal. The bed of the canal resembles a 
busy railroad yard more than anything else at the present time. There are several 
sets of double tracks along the canal, on one of which is the steam shovel and on 
the other the dirt trains run endlessly, being filled by the steam shovels as they pass. 
All of this machinery is of modern construction and built to perform the heaviest 
service. This is where France "fell down" in her attempt to build the canal. All of 
her machinery was very frail, and piles of it line the railroad track on either side, 
discarded because it was too light and otherwise useless. Evidently they failed to size 
up the magnitude of the task they undertook. The total amount of earth to be exca- 
vated before the canal will be completed is one hundred and twenty million cubic 
yards, of which about twenty-eight million four hundred thousand has been taken out. 
The main machine shops of the canal are located at Gorgous and employ about a 
thousand men. The excursionists took lunch at Cristobal, at one of the government 
hotels. Afterwards they repaired to the Y. M. C. A. gymnasium, where they had a 
pleasant hour playing games, singing and dancing. 

Before the fleet left Panama a special bull-fight was arranged for its delectation. 



228 WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 

About four hundred bluejackets attended and saw four bulls killed, one of them 
by a "matador senorita," or, in plain English, a lady bull-slayer. 

Panama was left behind by the flotilla March 22d. The weather was fine, the 
sea like glass, and the-sun tropical. On the third day out they came to a place where 
thousands of turtles were lying on the surface of the water sleeping in the sun. Being 
short of fresh meat, the fleet stopped to take a supply aboard. Pulling boats set out 
from each ship, and the turtles being such sound sleepers, all the^sailors had to do 
was to pull alongside, grab them by a flipper, and land them in the boat. The boats 
were loaded in about fifteen minutes, and the ships had turtle a la every style every 
day for the rest of the run. 

The flotilla arrived at Acapulco, Mexico, about noon March 28th. The chief 
impression left on the minds of the bluejackets at this port was that the weather was 
intolerably hot. The place has, however, an uncommonly good beach and the men 
enjoyed going in swimming every day after sundown. Poultry and eggs were 
abundant and cheap, and the boats laid in a good supply. Good cigars were also very 
cheap, and stores of them were provided against the future. It was April 2d when the, 
fleet steamed out of Acapulco Harbor for Magdalena Bay. 

Magdalena Bay was reached on April 5th. The battleships had arrived in 
advance of the torpedo boats, and as the black fleet steamed into the splendid, spacious 
harbor the lights on the battleships came into view, making the array look like a city in 
the distance. 

Torpedo practice came to an end on April 25th, with varying degrees of satis- 
faction to the men on the different ships, and on the evening of that day the fleet 
weighed anchor and headed for San Diego, Cal., where it arrived on the morning 
of the 28th. 

The bluejackets enjoyed fully the hearty welcome they received at this city, the 
first American port they had sighted since leaving the coast of Virginia. 

The fleet removed from San Diego to San Pedro on May 1st. The next dav 
detachments from the ships became the guests of the people of Los Angeles, and the 
memories of the sailors are filled with recollections of the royal hospitality accorded 
them in that city. 

The fleet left San Pedro on the 3d and after a short but intensely squally voyage 
arrived at Santa Cruz the next day, where the flotilla rejoined the battleships. 

They got under way again on the afternoon of the 5th and steamed up the 
coast, arriving at eleven o'clock that night off the entrance of San Francisco Harbor, 
and anchored for the night. As soon as the ships were sighted large fires were lighted 
on the shore to let the people of the city know the fleet had come. 

At eleven o'clock on the morning of the 6th the two Atlantic fleets all got under 
way, and after being joined by the Pacific Fleet steamed through the Golden Gate to 
their anchorage off the city. The shore on either side was thronged with the populace, 
and the bay was packed with ferry boats and pleasure craft of every description. There 
was one continual roar of guns in salutation and the deafening cheers of the people 
could be heard apparently for miles. All the ships steamed up the eastern side of 
the bay and down the other side back to their anchorage, and then all anchored in 
four lines, dressing ship as soon as the anchor was down. 

And thus ended the cruise of the Black Fleet.

WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 




HE plans for the transfer of the Atlantic Fleet were undoubtedly well 
matured in the summer of 1907, months before either the torpedo 
flotilla sailed from Norfolk at the beginning of December or the 
battleship fleet left about the middle of the same month. Many weeks 
before either of these events occurred another squadron had left the 
Atlantic Coast for Pacific waters, making the first installment of the 
total of twetity-four fighting ships which, in addition to the existing 
Pacific Fleet, were to give a dramatic display, in the new arena of the 
world's commerce and conquests, of the prowess of the United States. 

In response to orders from the Navy Department, the U. S. S. Tennessee and 
the U. S. S. Washington, both armored cruisers ranking in fighting force and 
importance with the battleships, were formed into a squadron to be known as the 
Special Service Squadron and was to be held in readiness to start on the voyage to 
San Francisco to join the Pacific Fleet. 

On the afternoon of October 11, 1907, Rear Admiral Uriel Sebree assumed 
command of the Special Service Squadron, hoisting his flag on the Tennessee, with* 
Captain T. B. Howard commanding the Tennessee and Captain A. M. Knight com- 
manding the Washington. 

If there ever were such a thing as a commanding officer being a "father" to his 
men, that character has been perfectly personified in Rear Admiral Uriel Sebree. As a 
Captain he made every ship he commanded a "home," and upon becoming a Rear 
Admiral his fatherly influence was but extended to the ships under his command. 

Rear Admiral Sebree, U. S. N., was born at Fayette, Mo., February 20, 1848. 
He entered the Naval Academy during the Civil War, in July, 1863, and graduated 
in June, 1867. He was commissioned ensign in March, 1869; master, in 1870; 
lieutenant, in 1871; lieutenant-commander, in 1889; commander, in 1897; captain, 
in 1901, and rear admiral, in July, 1907. He has served in many responsible positions 
and has sailed in almost all seas. 

At half-past eleven on Saturday morning, October 12th, the pathfinding 
squadron steamed from Hampton Roads, Virginia, to traverse the course to be so 
triumphantly covered at a later date by the two other armed fleets. 

While following the story of the voyage of either the battleship fleet or the 
torpedo flotilla the thought has been less of the individual ship and more of the 
imposing mass; but in the case of the Special Service Squadron, with its twin units, 
we seem to come into more intimate touch with the home-life on the big fighting 
machine and to get at the bluejacket's own point of view in work and play, in 
jubilation and distress. The sense of camaraderie, too, between the ships seems to be 
intensified, it being easier to know what is doing on one companion ship than on 
fifteen, and it is a simple matter for just two to exchange mutual courtesies and form 
common plans. 

Probably for this close touch with the Special Service Squadron in the, shall we 
say, domestic aspects of the voyage, we are to a considerable extent indebted to the 
magazine of the squadron, The Washington Monthly, a periodical published on the 
U. S. S. Washington by J. E. Hayes, ship's printer on that vessel. This magazine is 
a very creditable production, chronicling in a clear and interesting way the doings on 
both ships, describing in a graphic manner points of importance at the ports called 
at in the itinerary, and scattering personal allusions and bonmots wrth vivacity and 
humor. The Washington Monthly purports to be successor to The Cherry Tree and

Hatchet, apparently defunct after only one issue. It is " devoted to the interests of 
the enlisted men of the United States Navy." Accustomed to distribution under 
conditions innocent of P. O. and R. F. D. facilities, the journeal bears the legend, 
'"Entered at the Scuttle Butt as first-class matter." 

We have already seen that the ports visited by the flotilla were in several respects 
different from those conspicuous in the course of the battleships. The itinerary of the 
Service Squadron j> characterized by features unlike those Standing out in the voyage 
of either of the other fleets. Having but the two vessels to consider, it was easy to change 
the course when any interesting localities on shore were to be passed. Hence, with the 
recollection in mind of the disastrous earthquake on the Island of Martinique, Admiral 
Sebree went thirty miles out of his course and passed very close to shore to enable the 
officers and men to see the desolated region. They found that a few ruins were all 
that were left of Saint Pierre, and the vegetation was just beginning to reappear on 
the blackened surfaces of the hills. They were impressed by the grand, but awful 
sight of Mount Pelee. Starting from the crater and extending clear to the ocean 
lis an enormous river of solidified lava, with smaller streams leading off from it and 
causing a mass of deep fissures and ravines on this side of the mountain. 

About seven o'clock in the morning of October 18th the mainland of South America 
was sighted and at noon the ships anchored off Port of Spain, Trinidad. The liberty 
parties who went ashore the next day seemed to make special note of the widely differ- 
ing nationalities represented in the population. The East Indian coolies seemed to 
constitute the chief laboring element. These people receive very low wages, about 
sixpence a day for nine hours' work, and yet most of them save considerable sums of 
money. These accumulations are frequently converted into silver bracelets and bangles 
for the arms and legs of their women, who thus preserve the family treasure. In their 
own "coolie town" they live apart and retain many customs which struck the boys 
as very peculiar, among others the married women were distinguished by a silver ring 
which they carried pierced through the nostrils. 

They visited the famous Pitch Lake which supplies most of the asphalt used in 
the United States. This lake is practically pure asphalt, and although it has been 
worked for years appears to be inexhaustible, for as soon as any pitch is dug out 
more oozes up to fill its place. It is so hot and soft underneath that only the surface 
which has hardened can be removed. 

On October 21st, Admiral Sebree having shifted his flag to the Washington, Sir 
Gilbert Carter, the Governor of Trinidad, called on board officially, and on his 
departure a salute of seventeen guns was fired with the British ensign at the main. 
Admiral Sebree and Captain Knight had already officially called on tne Governor on 
the island. In the afternoon of the same day Lady Carter and a number of friends 
were received on board by the officers, and entertained with music and dancing. About 
four in the afternoon of October 24th the two ships got under way bound for Rio de 
Janeiro, Brazil. 

In the evening of the 28th the equatorial line was crossed, and Davy Jones, 
Secretary to His Marine Majesty, Neptunus Rex, appeared on board to announce that 
his sovereign would visit the ship the next morning. Which visit was duly made and 
the landlubbers got what was coming to them. 

After a delightful voyage, with the best of seas and weather, the ships cast anchor 
■ off Rio de Janeiro at half-past ten in the morning of November 4th. 

The liberty parties visited all places of interest in Rio and were greatly pleased 



242 WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 

with the attractions of this great city. They ascended to the summit of Corcovado, 
and agreed with the verdict often pronounced, that it gave the finest view in the 
world. There is a sheer drop of one thousand feet on three sides of the mountain, 
and the story was told of the Brazilian gentleman who desired an original way of 
committing suicide and rode over the brink on his horse, exhibiting in his death the 
South American love of display. 

Venders of lottery tiiitets were seen on many of the corners, #nd the bluejackets 
concluded that the selling of lottery tickets was one of the most flourishing branches 
of business in Rio, for every one buys them and in order to keep up the excitement of 
the people stories of great fortunes thus acquired are often industriously circulated. 

On November 10th the President of Brazil paid an official visit to the flagship. 
The crews of the two ships manned the rail, and both when the President went 
aboard the Tennessee and when he left a salute of twenty-one guns was fired. While 
in this harbor other official visits were made and received by the officers. At four in 
the afternoon of November 10th anchor was weighed, and the ships departed headed 
for Montevideo, Uruguay. • 

Smooth seas and fine weather were the order of the day until early on 
Wednesday, November 13th, the vessels entered the roadstead and anchored six miles 
off from the city of Montevideo. The first liberty party left the ship on the 15th 
on a tug- chartered by Admiral Sebree for the purpose. 

Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay, is situated on the northern shore of the Rio 
de la Plata, and is built on a chain of moderately high hills with a slope toward the 
shore. Its population is about three hundred thousand. The city is well built and 
clean. It is spread over a large area and stretches back into thinly populated suburbs, 
but all parts are made accessible by a capital system of electric cars, whose lines run 
over fifty miles in the city and vicinity. The streets are straight, wide and well paved. 
A curious fact noted by the bluejackets was the absence of fireplaces and chimneys, as 
but few stoves are used. Cooking is done on braziers out of doors with charcoal. It 
is asserted that Montevideo is the most healthful city in the world, and the perfect 
natural drainage would lend some countenance to this claim. The climate is said to 
be about the same as that of Tennessee. 

On the streets men, women and boys were selling lottery tickets, much as 
newspapers are sold in an American city. 

The police arrangements seem to be perfect. The streets are safe for man or 
woman at any hour of day or night. There are numerous noble buildings and 
fine streets and plazas. The Solis Theatre seats three thousand people. The bull-fight 
is a national sport, but the law forbids the killing of the bulls, and the matador simply 
touches the animal with his sword to show that he could easily kill it if he were 
permitted. 

While at Montevideo, on November 14th, the Washington took on six hundred 
and eighteen tons of coal in one hour and fifty-one minutes, making an average of 
three hundred and twenty-five and three-tenths tons an hour. Upon the completion 
of the coaling Rear Admiral Sebree sent the following wireless message: "Well done, 
Washington! It is believed that this beats the record for two hours' coaling in our 
navy." Thus it is apparent that the Special Service Squadron was not behind the 
other fleets in the emulation and ambition to excel in all tasks which stamp the common 
spirit of the navy. 

On the 15th the squadron commander, the commanding officers, and several 



FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC. 243 

other officers from both ships called upon Mr. O'Brien, the American minister at 
Montevideo, and accompanied by him officially paid their respects to President 
Williman, chief executive of Uruguay. In the evening of the same day Rear Admiral 
Sebree, as squadron commander, went to Bvienos Ayres to pay a visit of courtesy to 
the President of the Argentine Republic. On the 18th the President of Uruguay 
made a return visit on the Tennessee, both ships uniting in the customary honors at 
the reception on the flagship. ^ 

On the afternoon of November 19th the squadron left Montevideo for Punta 
Arenas, Chili. On the 22d fine weather and pleasant sailing came to an end for a 
time. A strong gale arose and the waves broke over the superstructure. How rough 
this storm was may be imagined when it is said that the sea struck the first sailing 
launch at a height of forty-five feet above the water with such force as to throw it 
against the engine house and crush the launch beyond repair. The gale did not abate 
until Punta Arenas was reached. The fleet arrived at this port at half-past five in the 
afternoon of November 23d. 

On the morning of the 27th the squadron was again under way, headed to 
southward through the Strait of Magellan, bound for Callao, Peru. The speed of 
the ships was eighteen knots, with a current of from one to four knots in their favor. 
This speed was maintained the entire distance through the Strait, and it is affirmed 
that this is beyond question the fastest speed ever made by any vessel through that 
cheerless channel. 

Along the coast of Chili great numbers of albatross were seen. They are larger 
than the same bird on the Atlantic coast. Many of them have a spread of twelve 
feet from tip to tip of the wings, and the ease with which they soar through the 
air even against a wind blowing fifty miles an hour is marvelous. These birds are 
so powerful that when they are captured with hook and line, as they often are, it 
takes several men to hold them. The more literary among the voyagers were re- 
minded that the squadron was making practically the same run as that of the phantom 
ship celebrated by Coleridge in "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner." 

"The ice was here, the ice was there, 

The ice was all around: 
It crack'd and growl'd, and roar'd and howl'd, 

Like noises in a s wound! 

"At length did cross an Albatross, 

Thorough the tog it came; 
As if it had been a Christian soul 

We hailed it in God's name. 

"It ate the food it ne'er had eat, 

And round and round it flew. 
The ice did split with a thunder-fit; 

The helmsman steer'd us through. 

"And a good south wind sprung up behind; 

The Albatross did follow, 
And every day. for food or play. 

Came to the mariners' hollo! 

"In mist or cloud, on mast or shroud, 

It perch'd for vespers nine; 
Whiles all the night, through fog-smoke white, 

Glimmer'd the white moonshine." 

One experience the Special Service Squadron had which the other fleets had not. 
Soon after entering the Strait a snow squall struck the ships. So vfolent was the 
squall and so dense the snow that nothing could be seen a hundred yards away. 
This was supposed to be "summer time" in the Strait, yet the older officers said it 



244 WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 

was the worst snow squall they had ever seen. In addition to the snow, the weather 
was stormy and cold; hut when it cleared, as it did from time to time, the magnif- 
icent scenery — magnificent, but cold, bleak, dreary, and desolate — stood out boldly 
before the vision of the voyagers. 

Admiral Scbree went out of the direct course to Callao in order to give the 
officers and crews an opportunity to get a glimpse of Valparaiso, w-hich was sighted 
on the afternoon of Sunday, December 1st. A lighthouse signah^d to the squadron. 
"Welcome," in the International Code; and the reply was sent, "Thank you. Bound 
for Callao." 

The ships anchored off Callao on December 5. No shore leave was given to the 
sailors at this point, as an epidemic of smallpox was said to be raging at Lima, with 
bubonic plague cases both at Lima and Callao. 

Thursday evening, December 12th, the ships got under way for Acapulco, Mexico, 
which port was reached after a pleasant and uneventful voyage on the 19th. A liberty 
party left the Washington on the 21st, but found the town so disappomting that they 
were ready to return to ship long before their time had expired. At the plaza 41 
the center of the town is a band stand, and on alternate days during their stay the 
bands of the two ships entertained the natives. A hot sun, cheap buildings, dirt) 
streets, pineapples, gambling and grog shops stand out in the recollections of the 
sailors of this place. "Monte" is openly played on the streets, and cockfights are held 
on Sundays. While there is supposed to be a good market in Acapulco, it was 
impossible to obtain at any price enough turkeys and chickens for the. Christmas 
dinner on the two ships. 

The vessels left Acapulco at three in the afternoon of Sunday, December 22d, for 
Pichilinque Bay, Mexico. Land was in sight almost the entire trip and the squadron 
anchored in Pichilinque Bay about nine, Christmas morning. 

Christmas with the Special Service Squadron was a far merrier occasion than we 
have seen to be the case either with the men on the battleships or with the boys on the 
torpedo flotilla standing out to sea from that port. Aside from the dinner, the day 
was filled with all sort of contests and sports, and in the evening there was a first-rate 
boxing match, when a clean and clever game was "pulled off," as the sporting editors 
say. On Christmas night also the officers of the Washington gave a "smoker" to 
the squadron commander, his staff, and the captain and officers of the Tennessee. A 
Christmas tree was obtained, set up on the quarterdeck, and decorated as well as 
possible; although the temperature did not remind one much of Santa Claus, the tree 
was covered with snow. About nine o'clock the officers were invited to the quarter- 
deck, the tree was illuminated, and a present given to each of the officers of the 
Tennessee. Before' the gifts were presented an appropriate verse was read for each 
one. The presents and verses, as far as possible, were foolish ones, and were intended 
to show up some little peculiarity, hobby, or joke on the "accused," and so no one 
could say that the evening was not merry. 

At eleven on the morning of December 28th the ships weighed anchor and headed 
for Magdalena Bay, where they arrived about twenty-four hours later, on the 29th. 

On January 1, 1908, in accordance with instructions of the commander-in-chief 
of the United States Pacific Fleet, Rear Admiral Uriel Sebree, U. S. N., assumed 
command of the Second Division, First Squadron, United States Pacific Fleet, con- 
sisting of the U. S. S. Tennessee (flagship), U. S. S. Washington, U. S. S. California, 
and the U. S. S. South Dakota, the latter ship to be assigned to the second division 
later.

FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC. 



257 




Back Again to God's Country. 

T four o'clock, on the afternoon of April 11, 1908, there swept a great 
wave of rejoicing over the fleet as the ships, all clean, white and ready, 



heard the word passed, "All hands up anchor!'' 



That meant that the 
next 'Stopping place would be in a port at home. 

Rear Admiral Evans fought against the rheumatism which 
was everj- day bringing him closer to his bed. His iron will, however, 
was exerted against the inevitable, and he was compelled, while the 
fleet was in Magdalena Bay, to surrender to his condition and leave 
the scenes where his soul had been for so many years. He obeyed the orders of the 
surgeon, which took him away from the fleet to California. 

Rear Admiral C. M. Thomas, the senior officer present, then temporarily assumed 
command of the big fleet; and his flag flew from the main of the Connecticut when 
the fleet sailed from Magdalena. No whistling of tugs, no playing of bands, no flying 
of bunting and no firing of guns marked the departure of the ships from their field of 
target practice. Dungarees were scrubbed and nicely folded away. They were to be 
things of the past, for a while at least, and in their place the best in the wardrobes 
was brought to the surface. 

The coast of Lower California kept persistently in view as though reluctant to 
surrender its memories to the men of the great ships who had for the last month enjoyed 
the hospitality of the rocks and sand at Magdalena. 




FLEET LEAVING MAGDALENA BAY. 



—9 



258 WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 

From the moment that the fleet left Magdalena there was a constant disturb- 
ance of the "static" between the aerials of the Point Loma wireless station and the 
ships. Those were not messages of great official importance that were flashed in those 
three days between the ships and the shore; they were not messages of the press for 
ears of the great outside: they were just heart-to-heart greetings exchanged between 
individuals who in that fleet were coming home and those loving ones who were there 
awaiting them. To the'operators sending the message they all appeared very much 
alike and possibly a little monotonous; but the meaning they conveyed to the 
happy ones receiving them was that which only those who are counting the hours when 
they will see their loved ones can know. 

It was early in the morning of the 14th of April that one of the lookouts sang 
down from the top: "God's country, sir." 

"Where away?" came from the officer of the deck. 

"One point off the starboard bow, sir," replied the lookout. 

The course of the fleet was changed. 

This was the first of the homeland sighted since the fleet left Hampton Roajs 
one hundred and nineteen days before, and it is not necessary to say that it was a 
welcome sight to those who had been away for so long. 

Several hours before the fleet arrived at San Diego it was met by the advance 
guard of a flotilla of a hundred or more small boats extending in a string as far toward 
Point Loma as the eye could reach. As soon as the big ships were sighted the smaller 
boats put about in order to arrive at the anchorage with the fleet. 

The great Hotel del Coronado stood regally above the white sand of the beautiful 
beach, extending a stiff welcome to the fleet. Majestically waving from the most 
prominent staff on the premises floated the emblem of imperialism, a great golden 
crown in a field of blue, while humbled beside it fluttered a little banner of the free, 
the Stars and Stripes. Such a condition appeals to some Americans who since the 
advance in the price of hogs have disguised their family trees by shifting the accent 
on ancestral names. Such there are who prefer to take a chance in ordering from a 
French menu at Del Coronado to retaining their old ways when, a few years ago, 
corned beef and cabbage would have been the banquet spread. There are many to 
whom the great golden crown appeared the proper thing, but to the men on those 
sixteen battleships it did not appeal as a welcome home. 

The beach was lined with thousands of people who had gathered to greet the 
fleet w T hile the small boats that crowded around the ships were loaded to the guards. 
Among them were the wives, mothers, sweethearts, sisters and friends of the men of 
the fleet and theirs was a welcome that was a welcome indeed. 

With that uniformity learned by repeated occurrences the sixteen anchors dropped 
into the sea at the same moment as the fleet came to a stop off Coronado. 

After the fleet had come to anchor Governor James N. Gillett of California 
boarded the Connecticut and extended the welcome of the people of the Golden State 
to the officers and men of the fleet. 

It was a long tow for the liberty parties from the anchorage to the landing at the 
Spreckles Brothers' Dock inside the Baj of San Diego; but such things are mere 
trifles in the navy. The next morning after the arrival sixteen battalions of blue- 
jackets were marching in the parade. There were live thousand of them — men fresh 
from a cruise of more than 13,000 miles — maVdng the ceremonies of official welcome 
to the state of California. Sixty-tour companies of men-of-warsmen in uniform, with 



FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC. 259 

trousers reefed down in canvas leggings, and sixteen companies of marines, soldierly 
and straight, formed this notable land display. The landing party, equipped as infan- 
try, armed with Krags, in light marching order and with canteens filled, equaled an 
army corps. The procession the men of the navy formed was more than two miles 
long. They marched from the water front to the city park over three miles of streets 
canopied with decorations which combined the red, white and blue of the nation and 
the gold and white o/ the state. San Diego took a holiday to see the martial pageant, 
and the sidewalks paralleling the asphalted roadways were crowded with a typically 
holiday throng. 

Their enthusiasm was explosive, the appearance of the bluejackets and marines 
calling forth long sustained cheers. At the city park the sailors passed in review 
before Rear Admirals Thomas, Sperry and Emory, and Governor Gillett and his 
staff. A crowd of many thousands of people surrounded the grandstands. Three 
thousand school children, waving flags and banners, were massed directly in front of 
the reviewing stand, and their songs and cheers were a pretty feature of the day's 
celebration. 

Governor Gillett, in a brief speech, supplemented his words of welcome, spoken 
the day before on the quarterdeck of the flagship Connecticut, and Rear Admiral 
Charles M. Thomas made formal response in behalf of the fleet. Admiral Thomas 
said : 

''It is with extreme pleasure that I, on behalf of the commander-in-chief, who, 
most unfortunately, is not able to be with us on this interesting occasion, and, on 
behalf of my brother officers of the fleet, return to you, sir, as the chief magistrate of 
this imperial state of California, our most profound thanks for the cordial and loving 
welcome that you have given to the magnificent fleet that we have the honor and pride 
to represent. 

"In the midst of these welcoming ceremonies, there is one sincere source of regret 
to us of the fleet, and, I am sure that I may add, to all within the reach of my voice; 
that is, the enforced absence of our able and respected commander-in-chief, together 
with the reason therefor. 

"Wherever this fleet appears without its chief, it is very much like presenting the 
play of 'Hamlet' with the character of Hamlet omitted. 

"San Diego is our first home port after leaving Hampton Roads on December 
16th last, and your loyal welcome has indeed touched our hearts deeply, yes, very 
deeply, and we return to you our most grateful thanks and appreciation." 

After the parade a silver casket was presented by the people of San Diego to 
Rear Admiral Evans through Rear Admiral Thomas. In the casket there was a 
golden, jeweled key of the city, a symbol to the fleet granting them the freedom of the 
city. 

Every point of entertainment for the officers and men was carefully attended to 
in detail by the people of that little city, and the four days came quickly to a close 
when the fleet was again to move further on its voyage. 

It was six o'clock in the morning when the anchors were up ; and in spite of the 
earliness of the hour, the beach was lined with people who had been gathering since 
the first light of day began to show. Slowly the fleet steamed into column ; and 
gradually the column gained speed as it headed north. 

Steaming always within sight of f.e surf-beaten coast, the fleet was continually 
in the eyes of people on the shore, who had congregated from many points inland 



260 WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 

to view the unprecedented sight of a fleet of battleships at sea. Every cape, every 
promontory and every point of vantage was crowded with eager, enthusiastic and 
patriotic throngs, whose cheers as the fleet passed almost reached the ears of the men 
on the ships above the roar of the dashing breakers. The crowds on the shore grew 
in numbers as each mile was logged off; and early in the afternoon it became evident 
from the appearance of the shore that a city was being approached. 

More than a hundred thousand residents of Los Angeles^went to the ocean 
side to welcome the fleet, which steamed into San Pedro harbor, twenty-two miles 
from the Angel City, in the full radiance of a midsummer sun, and dropped anchor 
at half-past three on the afternoon of April 18th. 

The Connecticut, Kansas, Vermont and Louisiana took up berths within the 
sheltered portion of the harbor, where they were to have remained the full seven 
days of the fleet's visit, while the other twelve ships of the second, third and fourth 
divisions reached out into the open sea in a line nearly two miles long. 

The arrival of the fleet was accompanied by all the flashing colors and embel- 
lishments that had made its presence in every home and foreign port in the previoris 
four months a marine picture unrivaled in imposing beauty. The thousands of people 
who made the occasion of the arrival a holiday and who lined the seawalls, break- 
water, bluffs and beaches surrounding the bay, fairly went wild in their enthusiasm, 
as the fleet steamed into its assigned position. They had watched the ships grow 
from a miniature squadron, smoke-enshrouded in the distance, to the full-grown 
glory of the near view offered in the confines of the harbor, with increasing excitement, 
and when the anchors dropped with a white splash into the rippling blue waters 
whistles blew in a perfect pandemonium of greeting, while cheers grew in volume 
until they could be heard on the last ship of the column. 

Mayor A. C. Harper, accompanied by Lieutenant-General Adna R. Chaffee and 
other members of the Los Angeles reception committee, went by special steamer 
several miles down the coast to greet the incoming fleet, but did not board the flagship 
Connecticut until the signal, "Prepare to anchor," had dropped from the signal yard. 
Admiral Thomas received the visitors and thanked them in his characteristically 
gracious manner for the cordial greeting extended. 

Never in the history of San Pedro had it witnessed a more magnificent spectacle 
than that which on the night of April 18th, 1908, transformed its cloudless canopy 
into a grand phantasmagoria of searchlights and checkered coruscations, comprising 
the myriad of shafts of dazzling light which made of the sky an ever-moving though 
colorless kaleidoscope of lights and shadows, and of the sea a seemingly infinite 
pantomime of diaphanous forms and phantoms. 

It was three o'clock when the great Atlantic armada dropped its sixteen anchors 
in San Pedro Bay — the ocean for miles dotted with every conceivable size and shape 
of craft, ranging from the finest yachts of the South Coast Club to the humble 
"tubs" of the many foreign fishermen who have made San Pedro famous by their 
romantic colony. 

Everywhere, like gulls among the waves, the hundreds of sailboats swarmed amid 
the long line of battleships, and, like flies, the drove of smaller craft, including row- 
boats and gasoline launches, darted here and there among the white-hulled vessels 
of the mighty fleet as if nervously yearningfSut to touch their sides. 

It was a sight never to be forgotten by the hundreds of thousands of human 



FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC. 261 

beings who lined the great strand from Point Firmin to Newport Beach, or who in 
that scurrying army of local craft moved with patriotic cheers or speechless silence 
among the vessels, according to it a welcome such as perhaps no similar body of 
warships has ever before received at any time or any port. 

All down the beach the vast throngs of humanity crowded to the water's edge 
or swarmed in countless numbers to every knoll or promontory, cheering until the 
welkin resounded rfor miles with the echoes of their echo. And if there was any 
one thing that brought forth the mighty chorus of cheers more lustily than did the 
arrival and anchorage of that armada it was the ineffable beauty of the nocturnal 
illumination — the bewildering grandeur and startling significance of that spectacular 
electric display which the sixteen vessels gave in return for the welcome extended by 
the people of that vicinity. 

It was a display representing to the fullest extent and in the highest form the 
marvelous mentality and genius of all the great prodigies of the past and present — 
a display embodying in its incomprehensible splendor the grandest dreams of Newton, 
Franklin, Edison, Marconi and the famous marvel workers of the ages — giving their 
hope fulfilled, their visions materialized, their labors crowned by what would seem 
an inimitable perfection. 

It was a long wait for the night to come, but the crowds instead of lessening 
continued to increase, until it seemed that every one within a radius of a hundred 
miles was present to see the nocturnal pelagic pageant. 

No one was impatient, for the multitudes of pedestrians and automobilists which 
dotted the shore a thousand deep from the heights of Point Firmin to the sand-swept 
shores of Balboa, and even farther southward, as well as all the countless and more 
fortunate occupants of the various sea craft, seemed utterly unconscious of the time 
and contented themselves with gazing and cheering at the five-mile line of battleships. 

But at eight o'clock, when simultaneously the sixteen beautiful vessels formed 
a silhouette of fire against the blackness of the sky, and the restless searchlights 
scanned the sea and firmament, revealing the crowded shore line, and seeming to 
shed their effulgence almost upon the snow-capped peaks of Sierra Madre, there 
arose from the enraptured multitude such a thundering cheer of admiration and 
patriotic eclat as California never in the past has heard, and possibly may never 
again be privileged to hear. 

Every lineament, every curve and angle of turret, funnel, mast, cabin, hull, 
prow and stern stood vividly outlined against the darkness — the incandescent demark- 
ation of the contour of each ship giving it all the appearance of an incredible 
optical illusion. 

Five miles long, beginning with the resplendent flagship Connecticut, off Dead 
Man's Island, in the San Pedro breakwater, and extending to the scintillating 
battleship Kentucky, anchored almost opposite the Long Beach pier, but a mile 
distant, the great armada loomed up against the ebon horizon like a fleet of fire; 
and then, suddenly, their powerful searchlights burst forth with penetrating splendor, 
searching the heavens till the sky was as a crazy quilt of light and shadow patches — • 
an ever shifting constellation of radiance stretching from the farmost mountains of 
the mainland to the cerulean peaks of Catalina Island. 

Through the white steam fogs jC md smoke clouds of the myriad steamers the 
unnumbered shafts of light were pierced until even through the thickest mists their 



262 WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 

light dazzled the spectators and defied the obstructions, concentrating the radiance of 
their rays on great American ensigns at the fore and main of each ship, the powerful 
beams of light proudly pointed to the folds of red, white and blue as though they were 
saying, "This is your flag and mine; tin's is the emblem which holds us in the unity 
which gives us strength." 

As far as those electric Argus eyes could reach they saw but a great mass of 
people. Hoys were improvising rafts of railroad ties, fastened together with baling 
wire, and with a broom or pole were trying to work their way among the thousands 
of small boats to the battleships. 

It was as if those powerful lights possessed a magnetic fascination, drawing even 
women and children to risk death in the waves — just as the same rays draw the 
startled birds from the blackness of the night to dash themselves frantically against 
the great searchlights. 

Thousands were sitting on the almost perpendicular bluff of North San Pedro, 
their legs hanging over the edge, even though danger signs were everywhere posted, 
and thousands stood back in fear that the high embankment would cave in under it/ 
weight of humanity and hurl perhaps hundreds to their death on the beach below. 

Rut that night there was little thought of land troubles. That mighty array of 
scintillating battleships seemed as a guarantee of peace, insuring protection from 
every possible foe, seen or invisible. 

Only those whose view of the spectacle was almost shut off by the thousands 
along the precipice and water's edge had any thought of the others. Landslides or 
cave-ins were furthest from the minds of the multitude. The navy, the sea, the 
pelagic panorama — these were the things on which the great, throbbing soul of 
humanity was concentrated; and even after the searchlights were darkened and "only"' 
the gorgeous fiery contour of the ships was visible, the majority of the people 
remained, speechless for most of the time, gazing admiringly at the long line of illum- 
inated vessels. 

Not till eleven o'clock, when the thousands of electric lights were dimmed, did 
the last of the sightseers retire to their lodgings in San Pedro to visit the ships early 
the next morning, or to return to Los Angeles and vicinity, impelled to come back 
to them again. 

The First Division, including the Connecticut, Kansas, Vermont, and Louisiana, 
remained at San Pedro; the Second Division — the Georgia, New Jersey, Rhode Island, 
and Virginia — was dispatched to anchorage at Long Beach ; the Third Division — the 
Maine, Ohio, Missouri, and Minnesota — retired to anchorage at Santa Monica, and 
the Fourth Division — Alabama, Illinois, Kearsarge, and Kentucky — anchored at 
Redondo. 

So far as liberty was concerned, Admiral Thomas '"whitewashed the books" 
during the stay of the fleet off the seaside beaches of Los Angeles; and one-fourth of 
each ship's company "hit the beach" to participate in a carnival which will ever leave 
the pleasantest memories of Los Angeles in the minds of the several thousands of men 
who in the years to come will be scattered in every part of the world. From these 
the [iraise of the people of that Southern California city will ever be heard. 

Kaster Sunday came while the fleet was in Los Angeles, and piety and patriotism 
joined hands at the cathedrals ami churches, \\T le rank and grade seemed to be cast 
to the four winds as, side by side, admirals, midshipmen and seamen worshiped

LEAVING EASTER SERVICE. 

Almighty God on this the celebration of the resurrection of our Lord. They returned 
their thanks to the God who had safely piloted them through the many dangers of 
the long voyage and had reunited them with the loved ones they had left behind when 
the great fleet weighed anchor on the memorable day at the commencement of the 
wonderful cruise. 

The liberty parties were landed at various points, and once on shore they found 
themselves caught in the great tide that carried them free of charge through the 
beautiful suburbs of the beautiful city. They did not find "special prices for the 
fleet," for the people of Los Angeles had elected that there would be no prices at all 
for their sailor guests while they were enjoying the hospitality of their city. "One 
continuous round of pleasure" was never more thoroughly made real than in the 
"time" given to the sailors by the people of Los Angeles, who effectually realized their 
promises of giving the sailors the time of their lives. 

That all roads lead to Rome was a bit altered in this case in that all roads from 
the beaches led to Los Angeles, so toward that center of attraction the liberty parties 
concentrated. There was no friction to retard the progress of the sailors, for upon 
presenting their fares to the conductors, for the first time in the cruise of many moons, 
did they find that "their money was no good." 

The American man-of-warsman is not in the habit of looking for something for 
nothing; and nowhere can there be found a more independent person than he. The 
experience of getting things free is one so rare in the category of his experience that he 
was completely swept from his feet when he arrived at Los Angeles. 

If you ever went to a circus and tried to see everything that was going on in the 
ring at once, you will remember how ignominiously you failed. It was just such a 
condition that confronted the men of the fleet when they went ashore in Los Angeles. 
There was so much doing all the time that it was physically impossible to see it all 
at once. Very carefully arranged, however, was the work of the committees, so that 
the various events arranged for the edification of their guests followed in a sequence 
that allowed the opportunity of going from one to the other without confusion ; and 
by "making the rounds" the men were allowed to see some of everything. The pro- 
gram of one day was the same the next, so that all of the men of the big fleet partici- 
pated in the pleasures given them by the hospitable people of Los Angeles. 

Most of the men made at once for the pleasure grounds at Chutes Park, where 
an amateur boxing carnival, managed and refereed by Champion James J. Jeffries 
himself, was the first attraction of the day. Boxing is a favorite sport among the 
sailors, and their enjoyment of the Jeffries carnival was unrestrained. The enthusiasm 
reached its height when the champioK°iips of the fleet were decided. 

"Their money was no good" at the Chutes Park, which bears the same relation

WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 



to Los Angeles that Coney Island does to New York. There the men enjoyed the 
sports and fun that the place afforded without the preliminary ceremony of paying 
for it. 

Los Angeles did not resquest a parade from the fleet; but there was a parade, 
nevertheless, — one every day with brass bands and drum majors, a parade in which 
three thousand bluejackets and marines marched every day from the Chutes to the 
Agricultural Park. It follcftved the entertainment of the morning and came just before 
the big lunch that was spread in the park. 

Fancy the preparation necessary for the seating of three thousand men at one 
time with perfect table service before a great spread of the finest things in the land to 
eat, cooked, too, and thoroughly and daintily cooked at that. Such was the great 
barbecue prepared for the visiting sailors by the people of Los Angeles. The chef de 
cuisine was none other than the famous Pedro Rivera, whose fame is known from 
Monterey to Mexico. A veteran he is, a master of the art of preparing a barbecue. 
His profession was learned in the early days when the barbecue was to the Dons what 
the grand ball is today to our Four Hundred. f 

Five thousand pounds of beef, the choicest stall-fed yearlings that the country 



.:k£.££*fi: 




THREE THOUSAND BLUEJACKETS AND MARINES SEATED AT THE GREAT BAR- 
BECUE. 



could produce, were prepared daily by this master of barbecues, on the great spits. 
No barbecue would be complete without the accompaniment of chili con came; and to 
this detail Pedro carefully attended in the preparation of sixteen hundred pounds of 
that palatable savory dish so honored by the old grandees. Spanish was the order of 
things in the department under the charge of the veteran cuisinero, and his menu was 
not complete until he had added to it five hundred pounds of Spanish beans. 

Other details of the preparation of the great meal were left to the tender care 
of the ladies, who looked more to the delicate side of things. They believed that more 
than Pedro's came and beans should grace the tables. They were not tables on the 
rough boards of which the meal was spread; but the) were covered with the cleanest 
of spotless white cloth, fifteen hundred yards of which were used. 

The dainty touch of the ladies could plainly be seen in the arrangement of the 
tables. Pyramids of fine, fresh rolls marked a^-'ne down the center; there were five 
thousand of them, fresh from the ovens, and at each plate there were two great Wash- 



FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC. 265 

ington navel oranges. Three hundred pounds of butter were provided for each 
meal, and the aroma rose from five hundred gallons of coffee steaming in the huge 
coppers. The tables appeared like beautiful beds of flowers, as great bouquets of roses 
graced the center at intervals of three feet. Five thousand pieces of crockery were 
required to set the tables. Knives, forks, and spoons enough to stock a big store were 
required for the service. A coffee mug at each place completed the setting of the 
tables. I 

It was not a case of "stand up and snatch," for seats were provided for each of 
the thirty-five hundred men that came at noon each day during the stay of the fleet. 

When the men were seated they hardly knew when they were expected, according 
to the etiquette of the occasion, to begin eating; but that question was solved when a 
large American flag was hoisted on a pole erected in the midst of the tables. The 
hoisting of the flag was the saying of "grace," and that was done by one of the fairest 
daughters of the angel city. The navy man has the hearty, whole-souled way of 
expressing his appreciation of things; and when the flag was hoisted all the pent up 
enthusiasm, all the confined feeling of happiness and pleasure, was made manifest in 
a ringing three cheers for everybody and everything in Los Angeles in general, and 
for the ladies and the barbecue in particular. It was a rousing cheer, a unison of 
noise that only thirty-five hundred bluejackets could make, and in it was embodied 
the expression of thankfulness and joy. There was not the necessity of trying to 
express thanks and appreciation in some foreign language as they had attempted to 
do in the several ports of call on the voyage, but they were back home and glad of it, 
too, and their expression was the good old American one. It was not necessary for 
the men even to help themselves, for the ladies of Los Angeles attended to that, and 
they themselves kept the plates filled with all the good things that were there. It was 
a veritable feeding of the multitudes; there was plenty, and abundance left after the 
keenest appetites had been satisfied. Those of the ladies who were not actually the 
mothers and sisters of the sailors made believe that they were and so far as providing 
for their wants at the tables went they filled the part most admirably. 

And this was the far West, the wild and untamed West, that they had heard 
so much about, the California they had read of in novels, the California they had seen 
depicted on the stage in "famous Western plays." There did not seem to be much 
of anything wild in that scene. 

The committee for the reception of the men had, however, elected that the men 
should be given an opportunity to see something of the forgotten past of the frontier 
country which now bloomed in the dory and quiet of peaceful and happy civilization. 
A Wild West Show was the next thin;:: on the program of entertainment to follow 
the barbecue. 

At the park elaborate preparations had been made for the production of the great 
show. 

If one had ever been in Deming, or Tombstone, or Dos Cabasos years ago, or 
at Rhyolite, Rawhide, or Beatty in his infancy, he would have seen again what had 
been there displayed in the scenery I routing the grandstand. There was Peat's saloon 
and dance hall; there was the adobe jail; there was Sing Lee's laundry; the chink of 
poker chips, the drone of the roulette wheel came singing across the stretch, whenever 
the six-shooters stopped playing their leaden arias. 

Then came the grand entree, co\^oys with the ends of their red kerchiefs flying 
and spurs jingling, khaki-clad girls, wearing sombreros, madly tearing down the track on 

—10

WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 



their bronchos, the stage driver swirling his whip over the backs of his four horses 
as he sat on the box of the stage, six-shooters popping merrily, the "yips" of the cow- 
punchers and the shrill responses from the girls. It was a mad race of daring joy 
past the thousands of men looking on, and it stirred their blood to the yelling point. 
A cow pony at full tilt with a dusty man yelling from its back, and as much at home 
on his bucking deck as they would be on their ships, excited the keenest admiration. 
It was the biggest sort of ( , a show, one that in its novelty and reckless courage struck 
a responsive sympathetic note in human love of venture and everyone sounded it. 

What was in pure, gay deviltry the star act of the day was the bucking horse 
ridden by a most expert broncho buster. 

This was a really, truly "wild" horse — just from the range, one that had never 
been before within smelling distance of a man. He saw that he was in for a fight 




ANIMAL SUBMITTED TO THE ROPE. 



and was eager for it. As he was led out the creature's eyes fired with anger and his 
hoofs struck out viciously. 

Arizona Charlie lassoed the horse and threw him. He had to yield to the rope, 
and down he went snorting and defiant. Vaqueros held him while a bridle was 
slipped on and the bit forced through his jaws. There was a fresh battle when the 
saddle was clinched, and then the rider made a leap for his seat, landed all right, and 
there was a picture of the rule of man over the brute such as no dominator of lions 
ever gave. 

The vaquero was a picture of the joy of daring, one of the type of men who 
would like to play pitch and toss with a stick of capped dynamite just for the fun of it. 

The horse took its rider six feet up in the air at his first leap, and came down 
with his hoofs bunched together, his nose buried in the dust and his rump curled under. 
The rider flung both hands in the air as a salute to the crowd, presenting a picture of 
daring portraying that famous smile of the President before the attack at San Juan. 
The horse's whole body pictured the rage, tft^viciousness of a brute, but the rider 
had the insouciance of a man having a pleasant time jesting with Death. 



FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC. 267 

Up and back again in front of the stand bucked that horse, sideways, every way, 
the vaquero never losing that charming smile and with no apparent exertion maintain- 
ing his seat. 

At last the horse despaired of shaking off his burden, and deliberately threw him- 
self and rolled. A cry of terror came from the crowd as the rider's face, still wearing 
the smile, disappeared under the panting flanks. Several of the vaqueros ran to give 
aid. But this rid<y was not of the kind who takes or wanfb help. He was a master- 
ful man. When the horse got up, it was the rider who made him, and during the 
entire struggle on the ground the legs of the man never lost their grip of the saddle. 

There were some men there who had been at the taking of Manila, or the Battle 
of Santiago, or who aided in bombarding the Taku Forts; there were certainly thou- 
sands who would like to have been, and who knew a fight when they saw it. That 
contest between this man and his broncho was in its way just as much of a battle as 
ever was any struggle on shore or sea, and the result was just as inevitable as any 
must be where brain is pitted against muscle. 

• The shock of black hair of the man was tossed wildly with the lurches and 
bounds of the animal, his face glowed with his sense of power and mastery, and 
finally, when all the fire of fight had faded from the creature's eyes, and the lust of 
combat gave way to the sense of surrender, the vaquero led his conquered foe away 
and patted his neck. He never "pulled leather" a second. He was tamed, and the 
kindness administered to the brute upon its surrender taught it the lesson that kept it 
docile. 

It may interest the fight fans who think they see a struggle when two men punch 
each other's heads according to rule, and the seconds of a watch, to know that if they 
can get such a man in a ring with a broncho, they will see something more worth 
while than even Mr. Jeffries can produce in the way of excitement. 

Another broncho was "busted," but he had a quick sense of discretion and gave up 
the fight before it began. 

Sing Lee happened to show outside of his laundry, and for a change one of the 
cowboys lassoed him, and the drama became good comedy, which was given a touch 
of romance as four good-looking girls crossed the track in the interval before the 
next stunt. Sailors have a quick eye for a pretty girl with a springy walk, and they 
at once rose to the occasion and to their feet and cheered those girls, beating the band 
to a whisper. 

But the young women knew what to do and they did it. They waved their 
handkerchiefs and their hands, and one seemed to wave a few kisses as well. At any 
rate they made the men evidently satisfied with themselves, and it all formed a pretty 
picture. 

Ring-spearing followed. It seemed as though they all must have had accident 
insurance policies put safely away, for they rode like mad. It was too exciting to 
bother about scores, though it was announced later that some one had won with five 
rings, some one else having speared four, another four, and the last man three. 

Rifle shooting at glass balls thrown into the air followed, the sharpshooters doing 
wonderful work. A man came tearing down the track on his horse with a girl riding 
a few paces ahead, flinging the balls into the air, which he took — bing, bing — sometimes 
getting two at once. Another man fii£ from the ground, and when a third made some 
objection to his skill he shot off the top of the protestant's hat and later proved that he 



268 WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 

could hit a fleck of balloons by shooting the gas out of a red one a hundred feet in 
the air. 

A quadrille danced on horseback by four couples was as clever a bit of skill as 
one would want to see. It would make a beautiful figure for any bachelor's cotillion. 

A tug of war on horseback was another of the many features. The men, five on 
a side, lined up with the rope caught on their saddle pommels by stringers. At the 
word the! range ponies settled back on their haunches. One man had his saddle pulled 
up on his horse's back, but he calmly slipped back of it and sat r behind the cantle, 
while his pony settled down with his knees scraping the ground. That side won. It 
was hard to tell which side it was, or whether the award went to the others, but it 
would be safe to wager that man and that pony never could be beaten. 

One rider there was who showed the bluejacket audience what a man can do in 
the way of trick riding. He flung himself all over and under his horse while on the 
dead run ; he picked up his hat and rode under his horse's body. That stirred the 
enthusiasm of the audience as much as it would a landsman to see fighting maneuvers 

of a fleet at sea. 

p 

What was as good a melodrama as one will ever see, probably better, if one likes 
the Kremer-Davis brand, followed, when "Big Hutch" drove his mud wagon up to 
Peat's saloon, loaded on some of the girls of the station and started across the plains. 
At the half mile he was held up by four highwaymen, the box was taken and the 
bandits made their escape. But not before one of the lady passengers jumped on the 
back of a lead horse, rode like mad back to the station and got the cow-punchers. 
Then came a race. 

The robbers did well, but right in the home stretch two of them were roped and 
put into jail. The one who had taken the box came along and shot off the lock, when 
the sheriff took a shot at him. 

A duel followed. A bullet in his right hand never fazed that sheriff; he just 
began pumping bullets with his left. The robber could not stand a bullet in his heart. 
so he fell and died beautifully. 

Meanwhile the other two had climbed out of the roof of the jail, a vaquero girl 
had a horse ready, which one of them mounted and rode away. The other went down 
in a lump at the fire of about twoscore of cowboys. 

The bodies of the bandits were laid out in Peat's saloon, and then, "Curtain." 

Steer riding followed that was almost as wild as the vaquero's exploit on his wild 
horse. 

A contest for a greased pig, and a little drama about an escaping sailor, though 
none showed any desire to escape, closed a perfect entertainment and one that will 
make the men of the Atlantic Fleet long and happily remember their hosts in 
Los Angeles. 

A banquet tendered to Admirals Thomas, Sperry and Emory was replete with 
surprises, picturesque features and beautiful effects in floral decorations of lighting. 
It was attended by many of the most prominent officials and men of affairs in the city 
and state, and was as elaborate a feast as the ingenuity of the committee in charge 
and the culinary experts could make it. The menu was a secret affair, each course 
attended by a surprise. 

The big gilded dining salon of the Hotel Alexandria had been closed to guests 
for four days while the decorations for the b-uiquet were in progress, and it was in 
reality a bower of roses and vines. The air \va,. deeply laden with the perfume of the 
mingled blooms. The entry was an arbor of flowers. 



FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC. 



269 



Above the table seating two hundred and sixty guests a trellis work had been con- 
structed, and in this way side walls and ceiling were covered with roses, poppies, 
geraniums, lilies and the myriads of flowers that abound in Southern California. 
Fountains playing in vari-colored electric rays and twoscore of canaries singing amid 
the vines were among the leatures. 

The snowy linen of the tables was banked with American Beauties. Three 
thousand incandescent bulbs of red, white and blue were scattered in artless profusion 
among the flowers, and the effect of the combined decorative features was one of 
rare beauty. Lieut. Gen. Adna R. Chaffee presided at the banquet, and Joseph Scott, 
president of the Los Angeles board of education, acted as toastmaster. 

The spirit of the people of Los Angeles during the preparation for the reception 
of the fleet and during the fleet's visit to the city seemed to have been a desire to see 
how much could be contributed toward the entertainment of the fleet, a desire to see 




SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA HOSPITALITY. 
The men of the fleet were whirled through welcoming crowds in automobiles. 



how much could be given to the men, instead of planning for the visit of the fleet to see 
what the city could make, what advantages they could gain and how much money 
would be spent by the men. It was a condition which was most strikingly noticeable 
to the men whose general experiences ashore had been with grafters. The freedom 
of the city was unreservedly extended by all of its citizens. On one occasion over five 
hundred automobiles were placed at the disposal of the enlisted men of the fleet, and 
in them over two thousand men were sped through the streets of the city and over the 
suburban roads through the beautiful country which makes this Southern California 
paradise. It was not an infrequent occurrence for men to be overhauled while walking 
in residence districts of the city by gentlemen in automobiles, who took them as their 
guests to their homes. They enjoyed the stories told in the evening of the cruise 
which had just been made. They wer£§lad to have the sailors with them. They took 
their iruests during the evening to places of amusement, and with it all the sailors 



270 WITH THE AMERICAN FLEET 

were impressed with the feeling of true hospitality. Early in the morning the sailor 
guests were driven over the beautiful roads to the points from which their liberty 
parties embarked for the ship. 

Reciprocity is a law which practically governs the life of a sailor, and his desire 
substantially to show his appreciation for the cordial welcome extended by the people 
of Los Angeles led to a subscription being started through the fleet for the purpose 
of raising fifteen thousand dollars to erect a public drinking fountain to commemorate 
the pleasures of their visit. Again did the people of Los Angeles confirm their sincerity 
in the genuineness of their hospitality by refusing to accept the offer of the men of 
the fleet, telling them that the spirit was taken for the deed, and the people of Los 
Angeles took pride in the fact that their efforts to entertain their visiting guests were 
so greatly appreciated. 

Reluctantly things were secured for sea, and at seven o'clock on the morning of 
April 25th the fleet again got under way, steaming northward in a summer haze 
that hung over the Bay of Santa Monica. The fleet slowly passed Point Duma 
two hours later, while a hundred thousand people assembled along the shores to extend 
them a reluctant farewell. No spectacle so superb had ever been witnessed off the 
«_oast of Southern California, unless it was the arrival of the same ships a week 
before. Cheers did not suffice to express their emotion, the waving of flags and the 
booming of guns seemed inadequate, but the groups of tired people that stood for 
hours patiently awaiting the coming of the ships and the tears that filled eyes straining 
seaward as one by one they faded from view were evidences of the welcome that trie 
fleet had known and of the regret that attended its leaving. Aboard the ships the 
officers and men watched the land fade behind them and wondered where again they 
would be greeted with such real hospitality. 

The trip up the coast after leaving Los Angeles was made under changing 
conditions of fog and sunshine. Soon after the ships got under way, after the 
assembling of the four divisions at Santa Monica, a blanket of fog closed down 
suddenly and set gongs to ringing and whistles screeching a constant warning. 

Rear Admiral Thomas, in command, on the bridge of the Connecticut, immediately 
ordered speed reduced to six knots; and booms were rigged out in protection. The 
fog lasted for four hours, finally lifting at noon, when full speed was resumed. 

In spite of this delay and the wait incident to bringing the ships into their proper 
places in the difficult anchorage formation, the fleet anchored at Santa Barbara at 
twenty-eight minutes after four in the afternoon, just two minutes before the first bells 
of the dog watch were sent echoing to the shore, and less than half an hour behind 
schedule time. 

A formal welcome to the city was extended to Admiral Thomas, the officers and 
men of the fleet soon after the flagship came to anchor. 

The fleet remained there for five days, a festival of flowers having been arranged 
in its honor — and a festival of flowers it really was. Liberty parties were attacked 
at the landings and on the streets by the enthusiastic people of the city, who bombarded 
them with ammunition of bouquets, causing a speedy and unconditional capitulation. 
Flowers! Flowers! There was nothing but flowers. In anticipation of the arrival 
of the fleet everybody had planted flowers in the vacant lots, so that ammunition 
would not be short when the day came for the great battle of roses. 

The perfume of the pretty flowers and the smiles of the pretty girls in Santa 
Barbara will ever remain pleasant and fa* in the memory of the sailors; but 
other things occurred which hold memories of a different sort. There were no fixed

features on Santa Barbara's entertainment programme. The officers and men were 
largely allowed to pursue their own ways. Many of the latter returned to Los 
Angeles to spend the day and many there were who, weighing the penalty, preferred 
to break their liberty in Los Angeles rather than to take a chance in other ports. 
The amusements offered in Santa Barbara were naturally rather meagre owing to 
the size of the city, and consisted largely of flying horses, shooting galleries and a 
large variety of catch-penny affairs brought there for the occasion. Dancing on the 
canvas-covered asphalt on the ocean boulevard each evening was the only picturesque

feature of the entertainment. All hands enjoyed it hugely, however, and when the 
available supply of eligible girls gave out they danced with each other. 

Frequently people in all the ports of call expressed a fear that sixteen thousand 
sailors would "raise cain" in the towns; but such fears had their foundation in 
ignorance. A score or even less of some of our "well bred" college boys can and do 
devise and execute more "cain" in five minutes than all the bluejackets in the United 
States Navy could think^of in a month during times of peace. r . Their time for the 
destruction of property comes after ambassadors are withdrawn. 

Four bells had just struck on the morning of April 30th when the fleet wa> again 
under way. Wives and families of those on board preceded the fleet to its next 
stopping point, Monterey, where the ships arrived a few minutes after seven o'clock 
on the morning of May 1st. 

The weather had grown heavy during the night, and when the flee' arrived 
oft that famous resort, large seas were running. Disregarding that fact however,

many small boats braved the seas in order to give their passengers a closer view of 
the big fighting machines. It was regular sea-boot and oil-skin weather ; and those 
who ventured out on that memorable May Day from Monterey returned to the 
shore soaked from the spray of the waves. 

Getting out of his bed, to which he had been confined in Paso Robles. Rear 
Admiral Evans turned a deaf ear to the entreaties of his physician and joined the 
fleet at Monterey. So enfeebled was he from the ravages of pain that he was 
obliged to allow himself to be carried aboard his ship in a reclining chair. 

Morning had just dawned on the following day when prows were pointed across 
the bay to Santa Cruz. Anchors were dropped in the harbor of this picturesque 
resort at half past nine, and again did the fleet find a royal reception awaiting for 
the stay of three days. ^, 

San Francisco was the objective point and all was impatience for the hour to 
start. 



FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC. 273 




FLEET STEAM IXC OFF POINT BOXITA TOWARD THE GOLDEN GATE. 

It was three o'clock on the afternoon of May 5th that the fleet steamed out of 
the harbor. Automobiles and carriages followed along the coast until the curtain or 
night was drawn about the fleet. 

It was a short run up the coast, and at half past ten that night the fleet 
anchored off the Golden Gate near the lightship. 

It was hardly necessary to call all hands on the following morning, for all had 
turned out early to get the first glimpse of the Golden Gate. Anchors were up: 
and through the towering, rocky portals of the Golden Gate into a new San Francisco 
risen from the ruins of two years before the battleships steamed in review of a 
multitude unnumbered. It was the same imposing pageant of immaculate white 
ships that sailed from Hampton Roads nearly five months before in the wake of the 
President's flag, but with the splendid accomplishment of a record-breaking cruise of 
more than fourteen thousand miles and three weeks of wonderful target work. The 
white-anchored, four-starred blue flag of the secretary of the navy, flying from the main 
of the trim little gunboat Yorktnwn, fluttered the welcome of the nation, while the 
governor of California, the mayor of San Francisco and the people of a hundred 
towns and cities voiced the greetings of the enthusiastic West. The exciting thrill 
of possible adventure lurking on the dimly distant horizon which marked the departure 
of the fleet from its Eastern base was gone, but there was still the satisfying sense of 
preparedness which travels with this self-reliant force of fighting vessels and the manifest 
pride of nearly a million residents of the great Western country who gazed for the 
first time upon a column of first-class battleships. 

Rear Admiral Robley D. Evans, then in command of the assembled ships 
of both oceans, stood on the after bridge of the Connecticut as the famous flagship 
led the way through the harbor's gate and until she came to anchor at the head of 
the battleship columns. 

Once inside the entrance to the bay the heavy battleships were joined by the 
armored cruisers of the entire Pacific Jipet, and the navy of the nation — all save a 
few newly commissioned or reserved ^nips on the Atlantic and some patrol boats 
scattered in the Orient — joined in a parade which for impressive beauty and strength

of lighting timber had never been equaled. Forty-four vessels, ranging from the 
16,000-tonned Connecticut and the five sisters of her class, down to the tin)' torpedo 
boats, hardly larger than a racing launch, passed through the harbor to the anchorage 
south of the Market Street ferry terminals, where they anchored in four long lines 
awaiting the review of Secretary Metcalf. The parade and the maneuvers of anchoring 
occupied fully four hours of time and gave to the people who made black the hills 
of the city, the islands of Che harbor, housetops and mountain heights twenty miles 
away, the most wondrous naval spectacle they had ever known. For after all, 
whatever may be the elaborate festivals planned ashore in welcome of the fleet, the 
ships themselves, steaming along in varying formations, really present the picture that 
is most beautiful to see. 

No black-hulled navies of other nations can ever match the wondrous impressions 
the white ships of the Atlantic Fleet created at home and abroad. 




REAR ADMIRAL EVANS AND 



MAYOR TAYLOR OF SAN FRANCISCO VIEWING THE 
PARADE. 



While the fleet lay at anchor in the harbor of San Francisco many changes 
occurred in the command of the fleet, beginning with the lowering of Admiral Evans' 
flag from the Connecticut on May 9th. 

As the blue ensign of the retiring admiral fluttered down to the after bridge 
of the Connecticut, a new flag of similar design was broken on the truck in token 
of the presence of the new chief, Rear Admiral Charles M. Thomas, who brought 
the ships from Magdalena Kay to Santa Cruz, and who acted for Admiral Evans 
at all the South American and Southern California social functions of the cruise, taking 
over control of the big fleet in his own right. The bunting of the new commander 
was saluted by thirteen guns fired from everteehip in the fleet, the waters of the 
bay and the green surrounding hills echoing tn£#signal shots. Admiral Evans was 
not permitted by his physician to go aboard the Connecticut during the ceremonies

attending his relinquishment of active naval service; but on board each of the sixteen 
battleships, the six torpedo boat destroyers and the auxiliaries of the Atlantic Fleet the 
final order from the departing Commander-in-Chief was read :

ing down my flag this day aboard the U. S. S. Connecticut, Flagship, I desire to 
express to the officers and men of the fleet my great regret at leaving them, and my 
appreciation of and hearty thanks for their continuous and loyal support. It has been 
a source of much gratification and pride to me, throughout my period of command, 
not only to see the number of vessels in the fleet steadily increase, and the units become 
more and more formidable, but to see the steady improvement in drill, shooting, and 
in everything that tends to efficiency, and especially to witness jfcie growth of that 
feeling of comradeship and esprit which transforms a group of vessels into an efficient 
war fleet. I am sure that both officers and men feel this same pride in the great 
increase of efficiency in these matters, and as it has been accomplished through their 
loyalty and zeal, to them I extend my thanks for all that they have done. 

In taking leave of them I wish to say to each and every one that they have my 
warmest sympathy and best wishes for continued prosperity and good fortune in the 
future. I shall always watch their movements with pride and interest, and I trust 
they will extend to my successors the same loyalty and hearty support that they have 
always given to me, in order that I may be able to see from my home the fleet which 
I am now leaving progress steadily in efficiency, so that it may justify the faith of our 
people that our war fleet is and always will be a perfect source of strength for uphold- 
ing the safety and honor of our flag, and "a security for such as pass on the seas upon 
their lawful occasions." 

I desire that this order may be read as soon as possible at a special muster aboard 
every ship in the fleet, as a farewell greeting from a departing Commander-in-Chief, 
in whose heart the officers and men will ever find the warmest sympathy.

The sixteen veterans of the Atlantic cruise were augmented by two battleships 
recruited in San Francisco for the remainder of the trip around the world, the 
Nebraska and the Wisconsin taking the places of the Maine and Alabama. 

While the citizens of the Pacific coast surrendered their cities to the visiting 
fleet, the sixteen great ships themselves capitulated to the army of visitors which 
swarmed aboard them during their stay in each port. 

In order to facilitate the movements of visiting parties in coming aboard, the 
commanding officers had arranged to have large floats made fast at the gangways of 
the different ships. Upon these floats tugs, launches and small boats of every 
description had deposited large cargoes of human freight, but to return to the shore 
for another load. Visitors were received at the gangways with that cordial welcome 
so well known in the navy. They were shown every courtesy, and none were obliged 
to stand about the decks for the want of a pilot and guide to initiate them into the 
intricacies of the great fighting ships. 

One need not blush at the fact that some sailors might have manifested a choice 
in their preference for pretty girls, apparently being a bit anxious to take the fairest 
ones under their charge and cheerfully to answer all questions they may have asked 
prompted by curiosity, disregarding the fact that some of them may have sounded 
ludicrous to the mind of the sailor with whom the environments of his "home" 
were so familiar. When it is considered that thousands of the visitors had never 
been aboard a battleship before and that hundreds of them had seen the seacoast for 
the first time in their lives for the purposfepf coming aboard one of the fighting 
leviathans, it is little to be wondered at that «& ir curiosity should have been excited 
to a very strained degree. 





FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC. 283 

Some were impressed with the fact that an inspection of the several decks 
disclosed no sleeping accommodations for so many men. This naturally prompted the 
question: "Where do the men sleep?" In reply, their attention was directed to 
the hundreds of hooks which symmetrically ornamented the I-beams on the berth 
deck. "At night," said one of the guides, "the sailors hang on these hooks." This 
limited explanation of things frequently left the inquirers wondering more than they 
did before their questions had been answered. It was a nAel sight to them to see 
so many men k%such a small space, but explanations soon dispelled the idea that 
quarters on the big ships were cramped and confined. Visits to the galley proved 
most interesting to those who had read the tales of "salt horse" and "hardtack." It 
was a revelation to see the cooks in their cleanest white hauling savory roasts from 
the galley ovens; and their visits to the bakeshop caused them to wonder greatly at 
the great piles of snowy bread, and especially they marveled at the stacks of pies 
which frequently met their gaze as they were stacked about the bakeshop to cool. 

Many of the ships had the breeches of their great guns open, while in the muzzles 
elgctric lights had been placed. Bouquets of flowers had been placed in the bore 
of the great guns, and the polished steel refracted and multiplied the display of color. 
Looking through them, the guns were converted into dazzling kaleidoscopes, and it 
seemed hard to realize that such beautiful things were the engines of destruction 
that they really are. The spotless white of the paint appealed to all of the visitors, 
and in comparing the ship with their homes ashore, the immaculate condition of each 
vessel suggested itself as a model of neatness. The steam laundries aboard the ship 
were interesting. 

When mess gear was sounded the scene on the decks was a revelation to 
those who expected to see the sailors line up at the galley with a pannikin and a plate 
for the ration of bean soup, hardtack and a piece of salt horse. The tables were 
neatly spread ; and on more than one occasion children were heard to remark to their 
mothers (contrary to stories they had heard) : "The sailors have knives and forks, 
and they even have butter." 

Sanitary devices were everywhere apparent to preserve the cleanliness of the 
ship. The bread on the big ships is mixed in electrically operated machines, and even 
the cook in each mess is provided with a mechanical dish washer. 

People who came aboard the ships, as they did by hundreds, lingered long more 
fully to acquaint themselves with the real condition aboard a man-of-war, which 
stood so glaringly in contrast to the stories which they had read and the tales they 
had heard of life in the navy. It is hard to estimate the number of thousands who 
boarded the ships during their visits in the coast ports; and these left the fleet with 
different stories to tell to those who were not able to avail themselves of the opportunity 
to see what kind of life is actually lived aboard our ships by the men in whose 
hands rest the safety and welfare of our country should hostilities threaten. A visit 
to the ships was a revelation ; and the hospitality which greeted the visitors was as 
cordial as that extended by the citizens who welcomed the men of the fleet ashore. 
As a matter of comparison, it might safely be said that the memory of a visit to one 
of the great white ships will be more lasting in the minds of the shoreman than will 
the memory of the sailors' visits ashore, in that the things seen and learned, aside 
from being little less than marvelous, corrected erroneous impressions which hitherto 
had existed in the minds of thousands.

CHAPTER XVI 




The End of the Beginning. 

T was ten minutes past eleven on Monday morning, .May 18th, when the 
battleship fleet, Rear Admiral Charles Stillman Sperry commanding, 
weighed anchor in San Francisco Bay, and steamed northward in a 
drizzling rain, to make the last run of the long craise^ The fleet was 
headed for Puget Sound. 

Off the coast of Oregon the fleet encountered Very stormy seas 
and contrary winds. The hydrographic bureau on the Farrallone 
Islands had sent out warnings by wireless to all the vessels, and the 
prognosticated headwinds from the north made the progress very slow for many 
hours. 

At half-past four in the morning of May 21st the fleet was first sighted off 
Gettysburg, about twenty-five miles below Port Angeles, steaming at seven knots an 
hour in a single column about four miles long, with the Connecticut in the lead. A 
drizzling rain was falling from a leaden sky, and the smoke pouring from the funnels 
of the white ships obscured the latter half of the line. Admiral Sperry was on the 
bridge of the Connecticut and waved his hand in response to the "Welcome" signal 
run up at the head of a dispatch boat from Seattle, his first greeting in Northwest 
waters. 

At six o'clock the great fleet was off Port Angeles in the Strait of Juan de Fuca. 
Here the pilot came aboard the Connecticut, who was to guide the first squadron of 
seven battleships to Bellingham Bay. 

The second squadron divided off Port Angeles, Rear Admiral W. H. Emory, 
commander of that squadron, taking the third division, consisting of the Louisiana, 
Virginia. Ohio and Missouri, into Port Angeles for a two days' visit, while the fourth 
division, made up of the Illinois and Kearsarge, steamed away to await the rest of 
the fleet at Port Townsend. The Nebraska, Kentucky, and Wisconsin proceeded 
directly to the Puget Sound Navy Yard at Bremerton for some small repairs before 
rejoining the fleet on the eve of entering the harbor at Seattle. 

Just as the fleet divided the rain abated, and as the first squadron steamed across 
the Strait the sun broke through the clouds and dispelled the dismal gray that had 
hitherto blanketed the scene. A balmy breeze sprang up in the south, brilliant sun- 
shine bathed the white ships from mast-head to water-line, glittering on the blue water, 
and gave cheering promise of the bright days ahead in Puget Sound. 

Shortly after noon the seven fighting ships of the first squadron rounded Com- 
mercial Point, and soon rode at anchor at the most northern point touched by any 
of the ships during the entire cruise. Lieutenant Frank Radley, commanding a com- 
pany of the National Guard of Washington, had taken his station at Commercial 
Point, and as the vessels passed in line such a welcome was boomed to the fleet as 
would put the most demonstrative Fourth of July celebration to shame. As soon as 
the fleet arrived in Bellingham Bay the mayor of the city and a reception committee 
boarded the Flagship Connecticut and formally welcomed Rear Admiral Sperry and 
his officers and men to the city. 

The Kearsarge and Illinois met with ■^equally joyous demonstration at Port 
Townsend, and the portion of the fleet which >L^chored at Port Angeles was accorded 
a reception no less cordial and inspiring.

All three of these Sound cities did their utmost to give the men of the navy a 
"fine time," and their efforts were fully appreciated by the bluejackets, who for the 
time being took possession of the town. 

The only cloud to mar the general happiness was a sad accident that occurred 
at Bellingham. On the street car lines the traffic was far beyond the capacity of the 
service. One road ran to a pleasure resort, which was thrown open for the sailors. 
The crowds hung on the *ars wherever a foothold could be securjd. On the fender 
of one of the cars four sailors were standing when they felt the fertd&r giving way. 
The two on the outside jumped and saved themselves, but the other two were dashed 
under the wheels. They were J. J. Staub, seaman, and F. Lulinski, third-class master- 
at-arms, both of the New Jersey. Staub was caught by the front wheel and imme- 
diately killed. Lulinski escaped the front wheels, and was alive when taken out from 
beneath the car. He was hurried on a special car to St. Luke's Hospital, where he 
died a few hours later. The bodies were taken to Bremerton for interment in the 
Naval Cemetery. 

Lulinski was the light-weight champion of the navy and had won laurels in th£ 
manly sport for himself and his ship in many ports. 

The battleship fleet mobilized on Saturday, May 23d, the day that had long been 
set as the time for steaming into the harbor at Seattle. At half-past two in the 
afternoon Rear Admiral Sperry, on his flagship, the Connecticut, at the head of the 
line of ships glittering in the sun, arrived at Seattle for the four days' visit which 
had been scheduled for the fleet. The Connecticut was followed by the Kansas, 
Minnesota, Vermont, Georgia, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Louisiana, Virginia, Ohio, 
Illinois, and Kearsarge. The arrival of the splendid fleet of twelve majestic fighting 
ships, and their anchoring in the harbor, made by far the most imposing pageant ever 
witnessed in the Pacific Northwest. 

As the flagship arrived off West Point she was met by the steamship Umatilla, 
bearing the official reception committee of the city, and was greeted in the name, not 
only of the city of Seattle, but of the citizens of the Pacific Northwest, uncounted 
thousands of whom had assembled upon every point of vantage on both sides of the 
harbor and upon decks of the harbor craft of every description, making up the huge 
flotilla assembled at the entrance of the harbor to give greeting to the officers and 
enlisted men of the navy, who had traveled so many thousand miles to be the guests 
of the people of the Northwest. 

As the Umatilla came abreast of the Connecticut she turned and escorted the 
flagship to her anchorage, while the hundreds of boats in the welcoming flotilla 
formed into a double line and escorted the rest of the fleet into the harbor, their 
thousands of passengers cheering an enthusiastic and heartfelt greeting to the officers 
and sailors on the bridges and decks of the warships. 

Ballard Beach, Fort Lawton, Queen Anne Hill, Kinnear Park, Luna Park, 
West Seattle, high buildings in the city and every dock and wharf building along 
the water front were black with citizens and visitors from every part of the Northwest, 
who waved greetings to the warships as they passed into the harbor and took their 
places at the stations assigned them, where they were to lie at anchor w-hile guests 
of the city. From the water on every side the city was dotted with waving flags, and 
the bright toilettes of the women and fluttefce bunting made a flower garden of 
smiling welcome that augured well for the hospW^jty to be enjoyed by the officers and 
men of the fleet during their sta\ .

The Umatilla accompanied the Connecticut to her anchorage, when the flagship 
was immediately boarded by the official reception committee headed by John Franklin 
Miller, mayor of the city. 

Immediately after his presentation to Admiral Sperry, Mayor Miller, with a 
spoken greeting from the people of Seattle, and in the name of the city, presented the 
Admiral with the beautiful gold key made from Alaska gold as a token of the welcome 
of the Northwest and arPemblem of the freedom of the city for^himself, his officers 
and his men. <? v 

Admiral Sperry responded to the greeting from the mayor, and after 
acknowledging the gift of the key, accepted, in the name of his officers and men, the 
invitation to partake of the hospitality of the city for the next three days. 

As soon as the official ceremony was concluded Admiral Sperry turned to his staff 
and there followed a general introduction of the members of the committee to the 
officers of the ship. Admiral Sperry then entertained Mayor Miller and the official 
committee in his quarters. 

The city's greeting to the fleet concluded with the anchoring of the ships, arti 
the welcoming flotilla returned its many thousands of passengers to the city, while 
the battleships became busy with preparations to receive visitors and for the grand 
illumination of the fleet at night. All during the afternoon the harbor was thronged 
with excursion boats and pleasure craft of all descriptions, which crowded around the 
battleships, making a busy scene of picturesque confusion. 

From this time on there were busy times in Seattle, and the bluejackets had 
much to occupy their hours ashore. Receptions, barbecues, concerts, theatres, automo- 
biling, feasting, and every imaginable form of entertainment and fun-making turned 
the days and evenings into a continuous holiday jubilation. 

The most impressive event was without doubt the monster parade on the last 
day of the visit of the fleet. To those who had seen gigantic parades in the great 
metropolitan centres of the East and of Europe, this great array was very imposing, 
interesting and suggestive, but to by far the greatest number of the hundreds of 
thousands who witnessed it it was a most dramatic exhibition of the fighting and 
protecting force of the navy. Nothing else, in addition to seeing the great fighting 
machines themselves, could have given the thousands of visitors from interior points 
and the rising generation a more graphic sense of the importance of the navy. Probably 
the visit of the fleet to the Pacific shores is of far greater significance in the fostering 
of a spirit of national patriotism than any of us dream. 

It was estimated that over four hundred thousand people witnessed the parade, 
and it is very likely true that nearly two hundred thousand people from other parts 
concentrated in Seattle to see the fleet. They came in vast throngs from Oregon, 
Idaho, Montana, and British Columbia. Every incoming train and boat was loaded 
to the limit. Fortunate it was that the bluejackets brought their bunks with them; 
otherwise the city would have had a hard task to take care of them with proper 
hospitality. Seattle had never held such a multitude of people in all its history as 
that brought together by a common desire to see the nation's wall of defense. This 
seems the best possible compliment the Northwest could have paid to the great white 
ships and their crews. -, 

A unique feature of the parade was theJgesence in the line of march of a bunch 
of Grays Harbor bears. Sixteen members office Aberdeen Chamber of Commerce 
had come to Seattle to greet the fleet, bringingvivith them sixteen beau- as mascots

for the sixteen battleships. After they had done duty in the parade the cubs were 
distributed among the ships, those for the ships not present being shipped to their 
destinations. 

1 his cruise of the Atlantic Fleet has served a manifold purpose. It does not 
only confirm in the minds of the people the strength on which they can depend; but 
it has been a lesson of patriotism to the rising generation. School children by the 
thousands visited the flec# in every port of call, accompanied by their teachers, and 
during a single day aboard a ship they learned more than could na\jttbeen drummed 
into their heads by the reading of pages of history. Frequently during the visiting 
hours men would be seen seated on their ditty-boxes entertaining a large audience 
which had circled about them with details of the long voyage. Literally a lecture it 
was as they told of the strange things they had seen, and of the peculiar customs of 
South American people, confirming in a few instances and contradicting in many the 
stories which the children had read in their geographies. They were armed with 
pictures and post cards, which were passed about for the inspection of their interested 
audiences. 

In many instances parties who had been piloted about a ship did not forget the 
courtesy extended by the sailors, strangers to them, who had volunteered to show 
them about the big fighting machines; and upon their return to the shore many sent 
tokens of their appreciation in various forms to those who had shown them about 
their "homes," for such a ship is, or should be, to every man aboard. If this is 
not the case, where is a man to find a home during the time he is rendering his 
services to his country and to his flag ? 

With the jollifications, the music, the illumination at night, the panorama of 
pageantry and pleasure came to a fitting period. Wednesday, May 27th, found the 
crowds melted, Seattle swung into the routine of regular business, and the battleship- 
said farewell to the Queen City that so warmly rejoiced in their visit. At nine 
o'clock the entire fleet steamed out of the harbor, the Illinois, Kearsarge. and Minne- 
sota going to the navy yard at Bremerton, where the Wisconsin and Nebraska had 
already been sent, and the remaining eight sailed for Tacoma, where they anchored 
at eleven o'clock amid the most enthusiastic demonstrations of the people. The next 
day, May 28th, the Connecticut, Kansas, Vermont, and Louisiana sailed for San 
Francisco, whither the Missouri had previously been ordered. The Georgia. New 
Jersey, Rhode Island, and Virginia remained for a three-day visit at Tacoma, the 
last port of call on the cruise. On Tuesday, May 31st, these vessels weighed anchor 
and sailed out of Commencement Bay for Bremerton, where all of them were ordered 
to be docked before returning to San Francisco. This was the final act in the dispersion 
of the greatest battleship fleet seen on the Pacific Coast, at the end of the most 
remarkable cruise made by any navy in the history of the world. 

It was not that the officers and men of the fleet were not appreciative that they 
breathed a sigh of relief when they saw the fleet "scatter" to the various docks, when 
receptions had gone into history and for a full month before the voyage was resumed 
thev owned themselves.
